With unique insight Bertrand Duchaufour has thrown a noose The Selenicereus Grandiflorus, or Queen of the Night, is a rare cactus with a dramatic feature- it blooms but once a year, for a single night, with a fragrance so uniquely beautiful that it has been the stuff of legend for centuries. With this inspiration, Bertrand Duchaufour and Grandiflora have delivered a fragrance that not only captures the devastating beauty of this remarkable plant, but also the poetically fluid nature of its transformation, a captivating mix of memory and desire. Impossible to unravel, the floral bouquet opens fresh, bright and lightly fruity, gaining lushness and vibrancy by the moment before dawn's light sees the florals slowly recede into a gentle base with delicate woodsy and powdery tones. As with the fleeting bloom it so perfectly represents, Queen of the Night is sensual, compelling and evocatively bittersweet- a tale of love without regret.
