    A gentle woody musk that calls to mind

    Thomas Gainsborough-Portrait of a Lady in Blue

    Guerlain- L'Heure Bleue
    Heliotrope- powdery, cherry almonds,
    good enough to eat,
    surround one in a joyful cloud.

    Cool tones strike wistful notes.
    Imagine the days when scent was so precious,
    only the wealthy had this luxury;
    the tremendous pleasure it gave
    in a gray, dreary world.

    L’Heure Bleue was created by Jacques Guerlain

    George Inness, Home of the Heron, 1893

    Serge Lutens-Bois Oriental
    Surging, throbbing waves of color
    are the feathers in the woods.
    These great wings of delight
    carry me from tree to tree in a gust of
    bronze and gold.

    The cedars and the gentle pines,
    caress the senses with smoke and
    sap, coursing through their limbs.

    Boozy, there in the sky, I am rocking

    Henri Rousseau, The Snake Charmer, 1907

    Nuit Noir
    Exquisite leather and deepest orange liqueur;
    a swirl of woods and dark delight.
    Dancing, running, into dangerous night.
    Animals; cunning, strong and still loving,
    the smooth blackness of the ancient trees.

    Top Notes
    Orange Flower, Cardamom, Ginger, Orange

    Middle Notes
    Oliban, Cinnamon, Tuberose, Sandalwood,
