Mist-shrouded pine and moonflower creeping over flaccid opium poppies.

Amelia – December 5, 2017:
I’ll be honest, this scared me. When I first opened the bottle, it smelt like pine disinfectant and I was a tad horrified.
However! it dries down fast, the pine fades and the rich, sweet opium takes centre stage (much to my delight!)
The opium/poppy scent lingers for hours, but becomes soft and powdery.
After my initial shock, I can honestly say that The Dead Hour of the Night is one of my new faves.

The spirit of the full moon is capricious, intense and passionate, yet still distant, aloof and cold. Luna herself governs glamours, bewitchments and dream-work, innocent wonder, transient pleasure and delight, the Moment, impulse, mystery and veils. The Blue Moon is one of her rarest manifestations, and this scent is formulated to encapsulate her most complex and profound nature:
Mugwort and bay, for psychic sensitivity…
Juniper, for divination through dreams…
Orchid and galbanum, for complexity, wisdom and noscere…
… with a potent lunar-charged blend of exquisite Asian woods, moonflower, Madagascan ylang ylang, Florentine iris, wild juniper, starry bergamot, elemi, green tea absolute, palmarosa, cucumber, Clary sage, lettuce leaf, melilot trefoils, wood aloes, and pale creeping buttercup.

Sweet opium, Lily of the Valley, vanilla, mandarin and red sandalwood.
