"Apocalyptic" fragrance candle by Byredo

Fragranced Candle
Fragranced Candle/Bougie Parfumée, 300g/9 oz
Burning time: 60h

“The history of the apocalypse stretches back thousands of years and has often been depicted in art and cinema. Currently these predictions distract from the real perils facing the planet like global warming and biological diversity. Apocalyptic is a artistically challenge of creating a scent that nobody has ever experienced.”

Far from fire and brimstone, Apocalyptic is a wonderfully warm, wood fragrance that opens with the hot metal notes of fire irons melded with the glorious, rare, black raspberry from Oregon. At the centre of Apocalyptic, the scents of ancient papyrus and oakmoss conjure great age while at the base, warm dark woods and the smouldering birch hint at depleted primordial forests.

Scent and Style

Birthday girl Aurea on left at STK, NYC
I had a blast this weekend! I celebrated my girlfriend's 33rd birthday at NYC's trendy steakhouse, STK, located in the meatpacking district. We spent a few hours enjoying delectable skirt steak, mac and cheese, parmesan truffle fries, tuna tartar, and of course cocktails! As always, the service was stellar and the atmosphere was electric. From Micheal Jackson to Jay Z and every jam in between, the DJ kept the tunes going and our waiter kept the cocktails flowing! No celebrity sightings this visit, but my friend definitely looked like one Saturday evening! Wearing this glitter dress, Beyonce--styled hair, MAC makeup, and Hanae Mori Butterfly perfume, she projected the right attitude and style for her birthday dinner, sexy and more sexy!

Ready for a night out
Aurea appreciates perfume. This particular fragrance was gifted to her by her boyfriend who thought the scent was ideal for her and luckily she agreed. Initially, she refused to share the name of the perfume fearing I'd go out to purchase it for myself. Eventually she told me it was Hanae Mori. My GF is curvy with a backside she shamelessly embraces and flaunts! She appreciates her body and the sexiness that comes with it. Hanae Mori's Butterfly perfume is a perfect match for her personality and style. Launched in 1995, Butterfly, became a Mori classic. Ideal for the grown woman with a natural sex appeal and an attitude to match, which is her all the way. It's drenched in sweetness, little too sugary for my taste, but may be appropriate for that grown woman who likes to express her sweet and sexual side at the same time.
