Sugar Skulls in a bed of sacred marigolds for Dia de Los Muertos
Perfumer Shelley Waddington of En Voyage is introducing two fragrances for the fall and winter seasons. She was inspired by the spiritual significance of the marigold flower in the rituals of Nepalese and Latin cultures, and named the fragrances Tagetes Femme and Tagetes Homme (tagetes is the genus of the marigold family). The myriad golden and orange hues of the marigold are striking. I was astounded by the photographs a friend posted from India, of the lavish decoration of everything in sight with endless brilliant garlands and heaps of marigolds. I have always liked their odd earthy aroma, and would love to experience whole rooms full of it, or a big heap of them around my neck.
