Night Flyer – the original

(5 customer reviews)




Humans think of bats as elusive, mysterious, almost supernatural creatures, silently gliding through the interface between light and darkness. To experience the life of one of these night flyers, take a trip to the Cockpit Country of Jamaica, a crater-filled lunar landscape covered with lush jungle. The entrance to a cave in the hillside is shrouded day and night by a swirling fog, created when the warm air of the outside world meets the cold breath of the dark chambers beneath, with its scent of deep-reaching tree roots, moist earth, and dripping limestone walls. At dusk the bat wakes and flies on delicate, leathery wings through the stony labyrinth seeking the balmy air outside. It drinks from a stream, feasts on the wild jungle figs that grow on the hillside, and enjoys the ripe bananas and other soft fruit that grow in the cultivated clearings near the village. Fully satisfied, it makes its way back to its roost where it snuggles with its warm companions, grooms itself meticulously, and falls asleep again, lulled by the clean, sweet scent of musky fur. All sizes are parfum concentration. Notes: sandalwood, olibanum wood, vetiver, furry musk accord, wet earth, damp air, mineral notes, resins, leather, figs, banana, soft tropical fruits.

    This is one of those addicting fragrances. I just can’t stop smelling my arms. This is art! I smell each component individually, but also all together as one. I purchased a few other perfumes from this shop, but I don’t think I can stop spraying this one on long enough to try them.

    Gorgeous! Unique, but wearable, and true to life. The day after I received this perfume, I went on a hike and kept smelling the exact mineral, earthy accord I smelled in this perfume. Simply stunning – it brings a smile to my face every time I catch a whiff of it!

    Art in a bottle.
    The various elements are perfectly blended, and create a fantastic , fresh bright but deep fragrance. It never disappoints me and I can’t have enough of it!
    As a “love it or hate it” fragrance, it’s not for everyone; but it’s not my case.
    Well done, Ellen!

    A triumphant olfactory mirage – tenebrous and hypereal.

    An impressive, surprisingly wearable fragrance that will confound and delight yourself and those around you.

    I ordered this fragrance purely out of curiosity, due to some YouTube videos I’d seen. I am so glad I did. This is an absolutely unique and gorgeous scent! Completely wearable. I love it!

    The moist earth accord was the first I noticed, but I also get an almost arboreal perception, due to the ripe fruit in the mix. Nothing animalic about this one for me. It’s all about the brooding presence of the cave, hiding its secrets since time, immemorial, finally discovered by Ellen Covey. It is masterfully blended. This is an olfactory experience that you owe it to yourself to take.

    A perfect 10 out of 10
