The Pink Heart is a narcotic, hypnotic, almost hallucinogenic fragrance. It’s all about leaning into temptation, consequences be damned.
This fragrance transports you to a dual dimension where not everything is as it appears. It’s not just a pretty floral, it has a darker, earthier side, and an almost animalic quality to it.
The Heart of Ecstasy is inspired by a voyage to the island of the Lotus Eaters, a race of people encountered by Odysseus in the ancient Greek epic, The Odyssey. The Lotus Eaters were sustained by a mythological lotus tree laden with narcotic flowers, the consumption of which allowed them to live hedonic lives of pleasure, luxury, and blissful apathy.

HOW IT WEARS
The Pink Heart opens with bright, green tones, like freshly cut flowers. It then settles into the most unique and beautiful floral with the dry undertone of the narcissus flower as the shining star. The combination of white florals creates depth and adds a slight creaminess, accented by an intriguing sharp kick of Sumac. The wear of this perfume is great, we generally get at least 8 hours on the skin, with good silage.
Well, firstly we just love the pink bottle! But we really love how unique this perfume is on the skin, the dry-down is so gorgeous. The Pink Heart is strong and intoxicating, whilst also being quite refined as it has a beautiful dry, green floral feel accented by interesting earthy notes.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in Australia, made in France, Map of the Heart was conceived by partners Sarah Blair and Jeffrey Darling. Sarah a film producer and Jeffrey a film director, the brand was formed using film methodology, with a focus on the potent imagery fragrance can elicit. After calling in a team of experts to formulate the scents, the seven-part line came to life.
Each Map of the Heart fragrance comes straight from the heart, taking the wearer on a journey of emotion, memory, and sensation. From pure joy, to lightness, love or aching darkness and desire – our heart is our essence. By mapping it with scent and colour, we can explore what it is that makes our heart beat.
Created by renowned designer Pierre Dinand, the anatomical heart bottles aim to convey the notion that everything that comes from the heart is true and unique. This is the real heart, not a pretty, romanticised heart.
From the heart of freedom, to the heart of darkness, to the heart of love, Map of the Heart takes us on an olfactory journey unlike any other.
