Orpheus Incarnate By CurioNoir


Tiffany Jean, the owner and creator of CurioNoir never had a face for me as a child. When mum spoke of her, I associated the name with a collection of smells. Years later I know the face and beautiful soul of Tiffany, the woman who gave me little candles and wax moulds as a child. When I think of her now, the first thing that comes to mind is the smell of my living room which has the scent of CN candle 'Feather of Tears'. For years, each room in my house has smelled of a different scent, thanks to Tiffany.

My perfume for the past two or so years has been 'Tobacco Night', and at the time it was one of only three fragrances that CN had cultivated. This month their newest perfume Orpheus Incarnate is being added to a growing family of now eight aromas.

Orpheus Incarnate, to me, smells like a fairy would, if it were to fly past and touch you on the cheek. It's subtle, light and floral, not too strong or overpowering but fresh like the ocean or the wilderness on a quiet morning.

Orpheus Incarnate draws inspiration from its historical Greek namesake, and what form the legend might take today — it embodies the darkness and musical lyricism that the God represents. To accompany this new scent is a beautiful short video.

The photos I've taken include a silk scarf designed by Miss Crabb for CN, a hand-blown CN perfume bottle with black diamond jewel by Hera saabi and an old CN fragrant bottle of 'Purotu Rose'.
