(2 customer reviews)

Also known as the Queen of the Night, this fragrance interprets the highly transient night flowering cactus Selenicereus Grandiflorus. Collaborating with the iconic Bertrand Duchaufour, this special scent captures the rare and highly sought after Orchid Cactus - native to Central America. This flower is renowned for only flowering once a year; the blooms open at night and only lives a couple of hours. It is incredibly beautiful and is rumoured to powerfully ignite passions, then, by sunrise the flowers have been spent. A fleeting beauty, a moment of passion, and only the memory of a scent that will remain.

NOTES

HOW IT WEARS
This fragrance is an Eau de Parfum and the longevity with Grandiflora is generally about 6 - 8 hours, however we really get around 8 hours with this particular scent. Warm and sensual from start to end, after a few hours a gentle powderiness joins in as the scent relaxes on the skin. It’s a rich floral that oozes comfort and warmth. Settling into the skin like it’s always been there, almost apart of you.

LORE LOVES
We love that this is the scent of a flower that blooms once a year for only a few hours. Queen of the Night reminds us of a lush garden, full of sensual heady flowers. We love the complexity and the deep, rich, seductive nature of the scent. Queen of the night is like a soft and sensual touch, or something a little more indulgent. There is something quite intimate about the Queen of the Night.

ABOUT THE BRAND
The Grandiflora Fragrance Collection is the result of an intense love of flowers, particularly transient scented flowers. Those short lived blooms, whose flowers only live a short time. Opening her Flower Shop, Grandiflora in Potts Point Sydney in 1995, Saskia Havekes has a love for curating flowers. Collaborating with some of the world’s most respected perfumers to create her exquisite line, Grandiflora is made in Grasse. Yet the inspiration comes all the way from Sydney in the tiny little flower shop.

"A sumptuous, rich tropical floral fragrance with depth and complexity. If you like your florals deep, dark and bewitching, this scent is for you. Moderate sillage and good longevity."

Jo

"This is glorious unique scent, nothing else like it! It starts off with the most sweetly nectar rich floral, enchanting! Then it changes after an hour or so, it has complex both floral and earthy, it has a dark veil behind the floral, truly bewitching. Highly recommend for those wanting something spellbinding and mysterious. A must try!"
