extrait de parfum



Hera extrait de parfum by Papillon was specially created by Liz Moore for her eldest daughter to wear on her wedding day. Originally it was only meant for her, but her daughter Jasmine insisted on sharing Hera with the rest of the world. We are very happy about that.

Liz included some of her and her daughters favourite perfume materials into Hera, this gives Hera a sentiment attached to the creation, which makes Hera even more unique. Hera is festive and chic with a subtle nod to vintage fragrances of a bygone era.

Hera opens with a bouquet of rich flowers of jasmine, orange blossom, rose de mai, Turkish rose, iris, narcissus and ylang. Heliotrope, ambrette, vanilla, labdanum and musk creates a perfect interplay with the bouquet full of flowers and leaves on the skin a rich fragrance experience with a soft powdery and vintage touch.

Fun fact, the print on the bottle is screen printed in gold. The gold print contains real particles of gold.

Words by her daughter Jasmine. ❤️

"This perfume was created for me by my Mother, Liz, to wear on my wedding day. I didn't give much direction for the smell, but she captured past, present and future in Hera. When I was in my teens, I would steal her Shalimar before nights out. Back then, it was definitely a perfume that wore me, but I loved it anyway. Although I don't wear it anymore, it has become so beautifully nostalgic. Hera captures that classic, vintage feel in a completely new way.On the day of my wedding, gold was a big feature; every detail had to be gold! Hera is a 'gold' perfume for me. Wearing it is like wearing a halo of warm light. I was married in the Autumn and I see Hera as a blaze of glowing autumn colors, but with the lingering flush of summer flowers still being lifted on the wind. And to the future. Hera is bright and optimistic. It feels understated but has an undeniable courage and confidence. Like the goddess herself, there is a rich but power to Hera. It does not have to shout for you to appreciate its importance but there is a whisper to it that promises a resilient and sure heart.Hera is the perfume you need when you are ready to step into your power. Although I am biased, it is an instant and timeless classic. I hope it wraps you in the romance of a vintage film and sets you centre stage like a starlet - just like it did for me on my wedding day."
