Called the "Queen of the Night" in India, this delicate little white or slightly pink flower opens at sunset to let out its warm, heady perfume. Established in the Grasse countryside in the 17th century, it ensured the success of its master glove makers and perfumers. Its aromas are intensely floral and persistent... absolutely bewitching and refined.
