With daring doses of jasmine and wild rich musks, Salome’s velvety animalic facets dance seductively behind a veil of Turkish rose and carnation. It lures with the warm, plush appeal of a boudoir before ensnaring the wearer in a web of unashamed erotic delight. Slip into your second skin with Salome.
Liz Moore's inspiration for Salome was taken from an original 1920's photograph of a beautiful erotic dancer. "It's a photograph that I pass in my hallway every day and each time I look at it I can't help but wonder about this daring and mysterious beauty and what her life was like. I felt that her dark and evocative portrait naturally lent itself to the story of Salome, who's intriguing and colourful representations have embellished fine literature for centuries. My aim was to create a perfume as enigmatic and alluring as the siren in the photograph whilst drawing from a wealth of enchanting literature about the spellbinding Salome."

A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
