Some scents like some melodies remain in your mind, in the air, intangible and yet unforgettable. Music and perfume operate with the same dazzling dynamic, spreading their notes in an ephemeral and intangible space. Histoires de Parfums wanted to enrich their perfume library, so after the great figures of literature, this collection brings the music to widen their repertoire. The title roles of five famous operas are the source of inspiration for these five sumptuous fragrances, creating olfactory portraits of five exceptional, captivating, stunning, passionate, charming and irresistible divas. In the heart of a Celtic forest in Gaul around 50 BC Norma, the great priestess of a druid temple, breaks her vows of chastity for Pollione, the Roman preconsul. But the latter turns his back on her for another. Furious, Norma calls on the Gauls to go to war but at the last minute, she takes pity on the Roman and sacrifices herself in his place. Pollione is so moved by her actions that he joins her in the hereafter. This sensual feminine fragrance with its celestial and mystical overtones starts out at the top with aldehydes and pink pepper that give way to a heart of rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang and cistus labdanum. A dry-down of Indonesian heart patchouli, Sumatran resinoid benzoin, vanilla, praline and musk rounds out this Floral-Aldehyde absolu eau de parfum.
