Poet’s narcissus. Pheasant’s eye. Paperwhite. Hunter from Thespian. You were once known for your beauty and Greek heart, your soul antiquitious. You are to be sniffed, admired, loved for your persistant floral notes. You make one want to search for love and feel they’ll to find it, if only within themselves. You are an example of fine perfume notes found in your fragile extractions.

Narcissus was one of my first wild card distillations. Spring is fleeting here in Sacramento and every spring, I feel the pressure to distill delicate spring flowers every day because paper whites and plum blossoms don’t wait for the summer heat to land. I pick the poet’s soul at sunset and race to steam its narcotic essence from the petals. It took two springs to capture these complicated aroma compounds that have birthed from batches of disappointments anotherwords, hydrosols that didn’t meet my standards. This skilled extraction meets my standards and exceeds my alchemic narcissus work of the last two years. Narcissus is a heavy animalic sweet aroma and is very much beholden of fine french perfumery florals as is fitting of a true queen of florals.
