During the darkest night, in the darkest hour, The Holly King emerges from the timeless enchanted forest to anoint us with the ancient purpose of the "holly-days / holy-days" - to draw us close to one another.
Holly is a theme almost never explored in High Perfumery - and with good reason. The plant bears no essence so the note of holly is always represented by a "fantasy accord."
SACRE NOIR begins as a dark forest scent. The heart of noble woods, resinous incenses, exotic spices and warm balsams evoke feelings of comfort and cheer while a single drop of oak represents the seed of the King's lighter side, now concealed. Christi's "Sugarplum" accord (a key element of The Longing) provides a familiar hymn of gourmand beauty to this otherwise dark and resinous holiday fragrance.
