Reassuring and powdery tonalities of vanilla, Persian wild carrot seed and orris, are embellished by a swirl of nutmeg, angelica root, lavender, and bay. Dusky accents of liquidambar linger on the skin, as soft as silk.

Expertly crafted by our Master Perfumer in Grasse, this fragrance features Persian wild carrot seed grown, harvested and distilled at the home of Parterre. The seeds have a powdery, mildly spicy scent which enhances the subtle amber character of the fragrance.

“The Hour of Dusk and Gold, a scent with its feet on the ground and its head in the clouds … a beautifully constructed, harmonious and detailed scent. It’s both pretty and comforting to wear.” – The Sniff

Signature Notes

VANILLA  The smooth, creamy scent of this Mexican orchid is a beautiful note for any fragrance. We use Vanilla here to balance the spice and floral nature of The Hour of Dusk & Gold with warmth and sweetness. Recognisable and comforting with a sophisticated variation.

WILD PERSIAN CARROT  The seeds of this attractive plant have a soft, powdery, slightly spicy scent. Originating from the Persian plateau, we cultivate and distill the seeds in our botanical collection, and the resulting oil is a key note in our fragrance.

ORRIS  Powdery and floral with hints of violet. Iris extract – called Orris from the French – is one of the most expensive ingredients a perfumer can use, taking 7 years to produce. We are excited to be producing this exquisite ingredient in our botanical collection.

LIQUIDAMBAR   Rich, balsamic scent with floral and spicy notes. The liquidambar tree produces this exquisite gum, whilst also having leaves of spectacular colours, especially during autumn.
