Lily of the Valley by Parfums Quartana

In the fragrant vernal days
Is the Lily of the Valley
With its soft, retiring ways"

COMMENTARY: It is said that the Lily of the Valley sprung from the eyes of the weeping Virgin Mary during the crucifixion of Jesus, and thus has traditionally been a flower of purity and innocence. In order to put emphasis on its potential use as a fatal poison, we corrupted its sweet fragrant white-floral essence by enveloping it in a “black shroud” and reinforcing that with a base of black leather accord. We also added a wet aspect to suggest tears.
