She walked on, between kaleidoscope peonies massed in pink clouds, black and brown tulips and fragile mauve stemmed roses, transparent like sugar flowers in a confectioner’s window-until, as if the scherzo of colour could reach no further intensity, it broke off suddenly in mid-air…”
F Scott Fitzgerald
A fragrance inspired by a passage in the book 'Tender is the Night'
An intensely vibrant scent, full of colour and a rush of sweetness, Scherzo captures a multitude of blooms: dark red rose, and clouds of peony, sunny yellow narcissus and crisp white pittosporum. The sweetness of tangerine is offset by the intoxicating purple richness of davana, which adds a twist of liquor to the scent. A base of golden olibanum shimmers with oudh, earthy patchouli and a sprinkling of sugar to capture the feeling of a confectioner’s window.
