AEDES DE VENUSTAS Pélargonium
This product is currently sold out.
A contemporary baroque take on geranium highlights the raw grace of the prized olfactive material.
A strikingly elegant still life in scent, PELARGONIUM portrays its namesake ingredient like one of the mysterious floral compositions of Dutch Golden Age paintings.
“My aesthetic inspiration was an old-school flower everyone thinks they know, even though no one really knows it," says perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, who draws geranium from the depths of the fragrance pyramid to display its complex facets, using freshly-crushed leaves shed light on dusky woods and resins.
As it is worn, PELARGONIUM’s stately bouquet takes on a spare, abstract beauty, an evolving work of art that imparts its beauty freely on skin.
Notes: Egyptian geranium, orris, cedar wood, vetiver, guaiac wood, moss, green cardamom, carrot seed, clary sage, elemi resin, musk
