Tropic of Capricorn
“[T]he dark fecundity of nature … a night so frighteningly silent, utterly incomprehensible and eloquent at the same time,” are words from Henry Miller's Tropic of Capricorn that influenced the perfumer, Ellen Covey, to create this dark, jungle tropical perfume. In Ellen’s own words, "The perfume creates the aura of a still, humid tropical night redolent with the scent of exuberant, blooming life, quick death, and the almost immediate rebirth that springs out of the dead flowers, something sensed at a level below conscious thought." We couldn't have described this narcotic, woody-floral any more elegantly.
