Flos Mortis Eau de Toilette
Flos Mortis Eau de Toilette is a fragrance by Rogue Perfumery. The notes of this fragrance are Indolic Tuberose Absolute, Indian Jasmine, Osmanthus, Red Currant, Leather, Musk
Flos Mortis (flower of death) seems a bit dark and droll for a perfume concept but there is nothing dead or dull about it. This hardcore tuberose fragrance is a narcotic floral composed to be an indolic dirge, headed by tuberose and Indian jasmine. The composition focuses on Tuberose’s indolic properties from both the fresh blossoms and the absolute. The indole note in Flos Mortis actually makes up 5% of the formula but is tempered with some Indian jasmine (grandiflorum) which shares similar indolic properties. The addition of red currant and osmanthus add some smooth and delicious fruitiness, while the raw black leather leather accord carries forth the rest of the animalic onslaught.
From its sweet, dark floral opening to its leathery mid-notes Flos Mortis is nowhere near conventional. It’s a fascinating Victorian beast whose inciting snarl dares you to revel in a liminal space of beauty and darkness. A true work of wonder that is sure to hold a treasured place in your own cabinet of curiosities.
