Direct from the brand:"Charles Tomlin Griffes is an American composer of classical music. He comes from a period when music was flourishing in the U.S. A good deal of great early 20th century American music owes its language to French (and Russians working in Paris) music of the time - especially Ravel and Debussy. The piece that inspired this perfume is called “The White Peacock” by Fiona Macleod — a Scottish woman famous throughout the highlands for her dreamy works—and set to music by Griffes. In Griffes music, the listener can hear the cream white poppies, the sweeping seas of flowers, and most important the silent noble glide of the grand bird that floats above the fields of flowers. For the scent, I first worked on the scent of lily. The lily had to float over the fields of violets, conjure the distant fog, and the oleander of the poem. We made the real lily more unctuous with jasmine grandiflorum absolute - the elegant jasmine of Egypt, India, and France. I made it whiter with ambrette musks. I made it creamier with liquid ambrette extract - the wettest fresh musk of hibiscus seeds. One of the rarest and most prized natural/non-animal musks. Violet and rose otto help extend the freshness of the bergamot and melon top accord. The overall effect like the music is lush, warm, noble, and dreamlike." - David Seth Moltz, co-founder D.S & Durga
