TWO LYRICAL PERFUMES INSPIRED BY "TENDER IS THE NIGHT"

by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Scherzo and Tender are two distinct perfumes taking their inspiration from

F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterly novel of change, contrast and passion; Tender is the Night.

The same evocative passage was interpreted by two perfumers into scent.

 

Just as great literature stimulates us personally, and uniquely, our

experience of fragrance is intimate and meaningful.

Scherzo & Tender

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…”

Scherzo

An intensely vibrant scent capturing 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 rich 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.

 

Tender

A scent of longing and seduction. Unexpected freshness from sparkling pink pepper, combines with an accord of ink and florals to inspire a reverie of black tulips.

Fluffy pink clouds of peonies, saffron, and mauve stemmed roses.

The lingering warmth of dusky storax and frankincense resins fuse with woods and soft leather, creating a seductive trail.
