This is the fragrant hyacinth of opulence; the scented equivalent to a radiant blue sapphire. Jacinthe de Sapphir’s deep blue richness was inspired by Marie, Queen of Romania (c.1922) and her Cartier Sapphire, the 4th largest blue sapphire in the world. It seemed that only a blue hyacinth would do to speak to the rarity and purity of the stone’s luster. Blue flowers are themselves, rather rare…
Jacinthe de Sapphir begins with a dewy, moist green waft of violet leaf, galbanum, and bergamot to open into the full bloom of the hyacinth flower. Notes of rose de mai, narcissus, and tuberose absolute augment the depth of the flower accord only to settle on a luscious and earthy base of tolu and peru balsams, vetiver, styrax resin, and civet. The result is not only meant to give the full impression of a living blue hyacinth but also to draw you into it’s world of rich hued and gloriously narcotic splendor.
Notes: bergamot, lemon, galbanum, centifolia rose, hyacinth, narcissus, orange flower, jasmine sambac, tuberose, orris root, violet leaf, civet, patchouli, oakmoss, peru and tolu balsam, styrax
