2x Art and Olfaction Award winning perfumer Dr. Ellen Covey has released a new fragrance Chevalier Vert that was inspired by The Court of King Arthur's mysterious Green Knight and the ancient legend of The Green Man, an enigmatic Celtic deity, (often associated with Beltane) who was the consort to The May Queen.
"This rhubarb-themed scent started out as a bespoke perfume made for a customer who has been kind enough to give permission to release it into my line. It is inspired by the "Green Knight" of Arthurian legend; a sort of ambivalently magical chivalrous hero intermixed with an ancient Celtic god, the "Green Man". The scent contains the green, slightly melancholy notes of a spring garden – citrus, rhubarb, tomato leaf, armoise, violet leaf, violet, orris, and peony, as well as sichuan pepper and soft woods." Debuting today May 1, 2017
