Aedes de Venustas Oeillet Bengale Eau de Parfum
A Flower on Fire
A rose that wants to be a carnation, set ablaze by an exotic spice explosion. Red petals turned black by frankincense. Our third release is a fierce, fiery, feral flower.
Black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, saffron, and an unusual lash of citrusy, herbaceous, gingery turmeric… Spicy fireworks turn the red blossom black. Once they’ve subsided into a slow burn, it emerges to blow a glamorous, strawberry-flavored lipstick kiss. Serrated petals like tiny teeth : being from Bengal, this reincarnated rose is also a tiger, clawing its way into the amber base with animal white pepper. It is then that, tamed by sweet balsams – vanilla, tolu, benzoin and labdanum –, Œillet Bengale curls up with a languid purr.
