Inspired by an erotic photographic postcard of the 1920's, Salome is an extravaganza of exotic oils which come together in a rich disturbing evocation of the world, the flesh and the devil.
Dark and animalic, warm and passionate, Salome is sexually frank and emotionally explosive. Turkish rose, jasmine and oakmoss are a prelude to disturbing and liberally used notes of castoreum and hyraceum, styrax and tobacco. Powdery hypnotic orange blossom, patchouli and sweet hay mingle with cumin, bitter orange and bergamot in a frenzy of whirling accords culminating in the revelation of the Seventh Veil and Salome's most intimate secret.
Perfume is the perfect expression of metamorphosis; transforming exotic raw materials into captivating fragrances, it can remove you from the ordinary and transport you to the extraordinary. It is the ultimate personal luxury; perfume is sensual, beguiling, glamorous and expressive. It has the ability to retrieve deep memories, stir the soul and yet still remain an intrinsic part of our very selves.
Exquisitely composed, all of the perfumes in the collection are eau de parfum strength using a very high concentration of the pure extrait.
All of our perfumes are androgynous as we believe there to be no gender boundaries when wearing a perfume.
Papillon aim to continue the beauty and tradition of the ancient art of perfume making in the 21st century.
