Indie natural line Providence Perfume Co has launched Divine Noir, a new flanker to the brand’s Divine fragrance.
The fragrance Divine Noir is a darker foil to the natural perfumery’s popular orange blossom scent Divine. Divine eau de parfum, composed by perfumer Charna Ethier is an ode to a glamorous friend who is never without her red lipstick. Divine Noir is a deeper, richer interpretation of the original Divine fragrance. Divine Noir is the little black dress worn after dark.
“My Grandmother’s dressing table, with its ever present bottle of Youth Dew perfume captivated me as a child. What mystery that dark perfume held! The deep brown liquid evoked glamour and drama. Without even smelling the perfume, there was an anticipation of enigmatic elegance. In composing Divine Noir, I wanted to capture the sensuality and style of a bygone era using luxurious natural ingredients,” Charna Ethier explains.
Ms. Ethier created a dark Madagascar vanilla bean tincture, and built an interesting rootbeer like accord with the addition of sarsaparilla, aged patchouli and liberal amounts of oakmoss into the composition.
The notes include bitter orange, coriander, bergamot, orange blossom, neroli, jasmine grandiflorum, rose absolue, oakmoss, angelica, vanilla bean, elemi and patchouli.
Providence Perfume Co Divine Noir is available in is available in 6 or 30 ml Eau de Parfum ($26 / 115).
