Luminous Lemurs embodies everything we love about Velvet & Sweet Pea's Purrfumery, from the packaging and ingredients to the intention. The perfume is sumptuous, opening with fruity blood orange and smooth 20-year-old Madagascan vanilla. It soon sizzles with lush Egyptian carnation, cinnamon and nutmeg. Rare 20-year-old sandalwood provides a soft anchor for the fragrance. It's a magical perfume of East African influence.
The Background: Perfumer Laurie Stern received a very special gift in the form of a magnificent ylang ylang essential oil when her friend and fellow conservationist returned from a trip to Madagascar. Learning of the Centre Valbio, a cutting-edge research station that has been devastated by the ripple effects of Covid-19, Laurie felt inspired to create a perfume to help. A significant percentage of proceeds will be donated to the Centre Valbio in Madagascar.
We have an extremely limited number of samples. All proceeds from sample sales at AVÉ PARFUM will benefit the Centre Valbio of Madagascar (click to donate directly to their relief fund).
