Sous Le Manteau Essence Du Sérail EDP 14ml VapoRegular price £39.00 Save £-39.00
Meant to create a desire that someone could not resist, formulas for love potions have been secretly preserved since ancient times, giving rise to centuries-old legends. By the 19th century, these aphrodisiac recipes were meticulously recorded in pharmaceutical books, some of which were rediscovered in 2016 by Sous Le Manteau and used to create a collection of five unisex perfumes. Modernised by perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, these authentic 19th century love potions are made in France, ensuring excellence in every detail. Each perfume comes in a box decorated with a caryatid or an atlas that were both photographed in Paris, the city of love, and each box contains a ceramic medallion, made in Limoges, to be worn as jewellery or placed under the pillow of the one you want to seduce. “Like an exhalation from a world where everything is mysterious, you float in the cloud that you create. The melody of curves. Each step brings you closer to the kiss that enshrouds your sunlit body. Desire is an imposture, an excuse to drown in your exquisite pleasure. The present flows like velvet from an insouciant reverie.” Essence du Sérail Eau de Parfum (essence of the harem) is a Floral-Oriental-Ambery scent dressed with bergamot oil, ylang ylang oil, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, rose, plum, heliotrope, peach, sandalwood, ambrette, and vanilla.
