D.S. & Durga White Peacock Lily - new fragrance details

A lone peacock floats over cream lilies, oleander, and a sea of alabaster violet. Orchestral pads of harps and horns drone. Pale blue fog hangs in the far woodlands.

The piece that inspired this perfume is called "The White Peacock" by Fiona Macleod - a Scottish woman famous throughout the highlands for her dreamy works - and set to music by Griffes. ...

For the scent, I first worked on the scent of lily. ...Lily accords are comforting and pleasant. I started there and made something very easy and approachable. ...Real lilies are hauntingly narcotic. Frosty powdery vanillic with off notes of overripe green melon and the porkier side of clove distillates. ...

The lily had to float over the fields of violets, conjure the distant fog, and the oleander of the poem. We made the real lily more unctuous with jasmine grandiflorum absolute - the elegant jasmine of Egypt, India, and France. I made it whiter with ambrette musks. I made it creamier with liquid ambrette extract - the wettest fresh musk of hibiscus seeds. One of the rarest and most prized natural/non-animal musks. Violet and rose Otto help extend the freshness of the bergamot and melon top accord. The overall effect like the music is lush, warm, noble, and dreamlike."
