Parfums Quartana’s Poppy Soma from the series Les Potions Fatales has won the Fragrance Foundation Award in the category of Parfum Extraordinaire!
Known to the Ancient Sumerians as ‘the joy plant’, poppy symbolized nocturnal oblivion, specifically sleep, night, and death in the pre-Christian world. ‘Soma’ is a Vedic word that means ‘moon’ and refers to the sweet milky sap that when oozing from the poppy bulbs would glow in the moonlight, and which was processed into raw opium to be smoked. Ours captures the before-and-after of the experience from sweet, milky sap to pungent smoke.
The poppy opes her scarlet purse of dreams.
