Our inspiration :
« Oh, little one, dear wife, your fragrance of verbena »,
the names he called me on coming here.
Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly” tells the story of a young Japanese girl named Cio-Cio San - Japanese word for “butterfly” - marrying and getting dumped by an American naval officer named Pinkerton. The scent of blooming Sakura is spreading all over Cio-Cio-San, perfumed with sweet Verbena she is waiting for the return of the man she loves.
Olfactory score :
Sakura cherry tree, Verbena, Iodinated notes.
Perfumer : Philippe Poissonnier
