Fascinated by the power of words, Alexandra has always been attracted to the world of literature. Often inspired by places and atmospheres described in books, she likes to translate them through her compositions. She has natural artistic sensitivity and appreciates all forms of self-expression through movement such as horseback riding and dance, and especially Indian dance which she practices. Perfumery revealed itself as a vocation and as a way to tell stories when she was 18 years old. Determined to find fulfillment as a perfumer, she entered the International Institute of Perfumes, Cosmetics and Aromas (ISIPCA) in Versailles in 2002 and joined Symrise as Junior Perfumer in 2007. According to Alexandra, “raw materials are rich with sense and emotions“. She is deeply moved by certain essential oils, which she explores tirelessly in order to understand and transcend them and one day, master their multitude of facets.Some of Alexandra's notable fragrances include: Givenchy 'Immortelle Tribal', Amouage 'Honour Woman', Oriflame 'M by Marcel Marongiu', Victoria's Secret 'Dream Angels Blush', Iceberg 'Iceberg White', Ferrari 'Leather Essence'
"Look at my blood flowers, because I write with a serene sharp blade that soothes as much as cuts into the deepest parts of my soul"
Licorice, Anise, Blood Accord, Clover, Orris, Dark Rose, Amber, Patchouli
@18% Eau de Parfum
COMMENTARY: Bloodflower is an exquisite, haute-Goth experience composed of a metallic and salty blood accord combined with black Sambuca, a heady Italian dessert liquor made from anise and licorice.The result unapologetically imagines what a vampire might be thinking when he/she drinks the blood oozing from your neck. The bloodflower’s other key feature is its role in the transformation of the Monarch Caterpillar into the majestic Monarch Butterfly, so we captured this vital metamorphosis in the dry-down, and you'll notice the fragrance transforms quite quickly right in front of one's nose, into a warm, spicy heart.To further round it out, we imbued the fragrance with rose for dark romance and various spices for passion.
