Heady and exotic
I love making perfume, it's something that brings me a lot of peace. I experiment as much as I can with the natural essential oils that I have and every now and then I come across a blend which I think is successful.
Of course, it is all subjective, what is strange and compelling to me might be repellant to another, but I don't mind that.
When I put together the Nightshade blend, I knew instantly that this was one of the successful ones. It smoothly combined a number of elements, elevated the scents I wanted to feature and produced an evocative perfume that I'm proud to have made.
Not for everyone, Nightshade is heady. It's a late summer's night in Acapulco, a midnight tryst in a winter hothouse or it's the lingering memory of the first time you saw your love. Nightshade is blended to highlight that most beautiful and exotic of scents, tuberose, with a supporting caste of cocoa and black pepper.
Nightshade takes its place with One Fine Summer and Sleepy Lagoon in the current range of Shanghai Lil & The Scarlet Fez's all-natural, vegan eau de parfums.
