Lacrimosa Botanical Perfume Oil
Aroma palette is a dark herbal floral. Highlights include blue tansy, blood accord, blackened rose, and sweet orange.
This deep, haunting, melancholy blend is inspired by Mozart's Requiem In D Minor. Lacrimosa is the Latin word for "weeping/tearful" and also derives from Our Lady of Sorrows, an aspect of The Virgin Mary. It is part of the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass and sits at the heart of our first musically inspired botanical perfume.
This blend opens with the deep blue note of blue tansy, which lingers throughout as the haunting refrain of the blend. As the drydown begins, our blood accord darkens the herbal with a touch of earthy metallic. While this blend lingers on the skin, blackened rose ties each note together and darkens the atmosphere while revealing a wistful top note of sweet orange.
