Silk tree, Acacia from Constantinople, “Silk Flower” in Persian, “Night Sleeper” in Iran, Nemuroki, which means “Sleeping Tree” in Japan, the Albizia is an ornamental tree native to Asia.
Its inflorescences are white-pink, pale pink or pinkish-red. Between May and July, they exhale a complex perfume of extreme delicacy. There is a hint of jasmine, reminiscences of ylang ylang, clove leaves, pink berries and a touch of wild strawberries.
Perfumer Pierre GUILLAUME was given the mission by the House of PHAEDON to interpret the Albizia theme for their new feminine fragrance, describing the composition as follows: “A whiff of ambergris, in which the oak moss would have imprisoned the delicate scent of Albizia flowers beaten by the summer wind”.
Key notes: Ambregris, albizia, oak moss
