A perfect balance, surprising and sensual
The strength and fragility of the narcissus, a fragrance between shadows and light. The perfumer Marie Hugentobler selects the exceptional narcissus growing in the French Aubrac mountains. Almost 1,600 kilograms of these wild flowers, picked by local growers, are needed to produce a kilogram of narcissus absolute, with its powerful and delicate floral facets. In NARCISSE TAIJI, the perfumer highlights the opposite forces in this precious and multifaceted flower. To the luminous and vegetal side of the freshly picked flower, the perfumer opposes the dark and animal side of the narcissus, enhanced by leather and patchouli accents.
