Island of the Moon Cologne


Island of the Moon Perfume

One of the ancient names for Madagascar translated into English is "Island of the Moon". I decided to make a perfume based on blending essences distilled or extracted from plants that grow there. One of the many inspirations that arise in thinking of creating perfumes comes simply by researching which aromatic plants have been grown in a particular country both in ancient and modern times and then selecting from the list several which I feel will work well together. The actual essences that we offer may not have actually been procured from Madagascar as the aromatic plants that produce them grow in other countries from which we procure our palette of offerings but the plants themselves do grow there.
