Plenty of fragrances are inspired by fairy tales, but how many have a fairy tale hidden within the scent itself? Épine Mortelle, featuring a fabulously juicy rose hiding behind a thick, intensely dark maze of thorns and peppers, will send you on a storybook journey of your own, where your adventurousness will be rewarded with a deeply comforting, intoxicatingly unique floral treasure.
The opening of Épine Mortelle is all dark spiciness, black, pink and Sichuan pepper that seem to hum at a low but consistent intensity, giving the impression of deep darkness with hidden complexities just out of sight. As we navigate this labyrinth, we stumble out into a moonlit clearing, where our rose- fresh, subtly jammy, and made luxuriously full-bodied in combination with a gorgeously rich mimosa- awaits our discovery. It is here that the darkness recedes, a lightly gourmand drydown of musky vanilla completely shifting the fragrance into delectable comfort. Some tales make us afraid of the dark, but with Épine Mortelle, LM Parfums reminds us that there's beauty deep in the night.
