Alberto Morillas pays an olfactory tribute to this favourite of Dalinian iconography and interprets the fluidity of imaginary time. Sublime, radiant and sensual tuberose, the fragrance illustrates time in perpetual movement, in constant evolution like the fragrance on the skin in perfect harmony, until the end of time. Here, the tuberose has been revisited and freshened with a fruity zest of citrus (bergamot, and two qualities of essence of mandarin from Sicily and Brazil). To sublimate the tuberose without betraying it, the Master Perfumer chose to coat it with a white floral accord of jasmine sambac and orange blossom. A touch of saffron brings a slightly leathery scent to the heart of tuberose from India associated with an exclusive accord of complex woody notes composed of natural ylang from Comoros and Ambrox©, a precious molecule renowned for its woody notes with ambergris, violet and tobacco facets. The base notes are softened by sandalwood and vanilla. An accord of sensual woods mixed with patchouli from Indonesia gives the trail its final seductive touch.
Originally from Mexico, tuberose was first brought into Europe in the 16th century by a French missionary, and it began to be grown in Grasse in the 17th century. Today it is mainly grown in India, Egypt, Morocco, and Comoros because it needs heat and humidity. The fragrant power of the tuberose and its carnal facet is linked to many legends and anecdotes that reveal its mystical and bewitching side. It is said, for example, that in Italy, during the Renaissance, young girls were forbidden to walk in the tuberose fields lest the erotic perfume of the flowers should turn their heads and lead them astray.
The Persistence of Memory piece, created in 1949 as a rendition of the eponymous jewellery inspired by Salvador Dali's painting, is meticulously crafted from gold. It's adorned with diamonds and gracefully adorned with exquisite drops of black enamel.
