Bruma is a part of Trudon’s first fragrance collection – a scented ode to Royalty, Religion and Revolution. A ray of sunlight spreads with the strength of a shadow. Bruma (“solstice” in Latin) is intrinsically tied to the sun. And to royalty. A ray of sunlight, an animalic sensuality; Bruma develops into a rich Iris with a soft smoothness of Leather. Distinguished, Bruma takes us into the night, a feminine rider draws inner strength from her surrounding elements; the all-mighty power of Mother Nature. The dark mysteries of the forest at night add to this woman’s carnal and magnetic aura. The icy night of the solstice, the woman takes her energy from the moon and the forest evokes an inner metamorphosis. The power of nature, and the forest at night does incredible things when you are open to its potency.
Top: Galbanum, Black Pepper, Lavender
Middle: Iris, Peony, Violet, Jasmine
Base: Leather, Haitian Vetiver, Tonka Bean
HOW IT WEARS
Bruma opens with an almost sharp note, almost an airy dry floral but it soon settles into a soft and powdery Iris note. The gentle and soft floral notes of Peony, Violet and Jasmine all start to come alive and compliment the strong Iris note leaving a delicate, softly sweet tone, but with an intriguing depth and complexity that lasts for 6 – 8 hours.
We love the strong femininity in this fragrance. It is powerful and self-assured on one hand then fragile and vulnerable on another. The perfect fusion, almost feeling regal, as the naïve princess moves into her innate inner power as the Queen.
