Addictive, genderless, and avant-garde. A green, obsessive and mossy composition. Nuit de Bakelite is a larger-than-life interpretation of the nocturnal and narcotic tuberose flower - fractured with the textural feel of bakelite. Supported by tuberose absolute, galbanum, angélique flower, fleur d'immortelle, wood notes, leather notes, and styrax.A word from the perfumer Isabelle Doyen (2017): "Tuberose sap, peeled tuberose, tuberose in a cage made of green and leather, a focus on the small peduncle that connects the flower to the stem, the sound of latex when several stalks of tuberose tangle, the wild majesty of the Persian tuberose". Awards: FIFI Awards France Winner 2018 for Best Niche and Independent Brand; Art and Olfaction Award 2018; Olfactorama Paris Award 2018.

Eau de Parfum

A most formal fragrance, wear this green mossy floral considerately.

Made in France

Tuberose lovers rejoice! Nuit de Bakelite is a glorious retro green: mossy, dewey, and vegetal; piercing as bitter artemesia, galbanum, and herbal angelica notes settle on the fleshy white intensity of narcotic tuberose flower. This is then further enriched with oily ylang ylang and the vintage sheen of carrot seeds and karo karounde - with an overall waxy, woody, and cleanly spicy facets. This must be an essential component of the detectable plastic 'bakelite' accord, perfected when styrax enters the mix: rubbery, oily, drenched in sunlight, and somwhat pliant in texture with clean smoke in the distance. In short, this is an exciting new take on tuberose - totally androgynous ... it will surprise you.
