Eau de Parfum
I aimed to create an alluringly seductive fragrance to fully represent the eponymous Biblical figure of infamy.
A scent that is beguiling, entices into believing you have the fragrance figured out, it proceeds to perpetually transform.
I desired the initial throes to be the playful elements of pear, vanilla and chocolate to then meander into the lusciously sensual territory of Damask rose and cashmere musk. This was to initially draw the wearer in, then morphing into a darker more foreboding setting and mood.
The mysterious chameleon that is osmanthus, veers wildly from sweet fruit to leather nuances and smoky tobacco.
Using predominantly naturals, I intended to enable the fragrance to dance and become ever-changing to symbolise and pay homage to a historical figure who was mesmeric, manipulative, machiavellian and surreptitious in her cunning and clandestine affairs. – Ali
