Flos Mortis EDT
This is a hardcore tuberose fragrance. It is recommended you sample first rather than blind-buy a full bottle.
An indolic dirge, headed by tuberose and Indian jasmine
Notes: Indolic Tuberose Absolute, Indian Jasmine, Osmanthus, Red Currant, Leather, Musk
The Story Behind Flos Mortis:
“Flos Mortis (flower of death) seems a bit dark and droll for a perfume concept. The composition focuses on the indolic properties of both the fresh blossoms and the absolute. The indole note in Flos Mortis actually makes up 5% of the formula! I tame this out with some Indian jasmine (grandiflorum) which also shares indolic notes, red currant and osmanthus notes add some fruitiness and sparse beauty, and finally a raw black leather accord to absorb the rest of the animalic onslaught.
From its sweet, deathly floral opening to its leather mid-notes, Flos Mortis is nowhere near conventional. It’s approachable and by no means is it unwearable. Flos Mortis is simply an artistic expression by one who is a lover of tuberoses and fascinated by dark Victorian-minded themes.”
