Evocative of misty mornings in Linderhoff, the location of the residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, known as the "Moon King". Linderhof am Morgen (Linderhof in the Morning) enchants and delights from the first spray of effervescent powder, fluffy musks and dewy florals. A unique and specially crafted Japanese tofu cream note represents the purity and lightness of a white swan feather—King Ludwig was also known as the "Swan King". It provides an addictive silken creaminess and luminosity to the perfume. Subtle notes of fruit and flowers create an air of playfulness.
Vanilla and benzoin develop well into the dydown, making Linderhof am Morgen decidedly more gourmand than the original. Base notes of cedarwood, tonka bean, amber, benzoin, vanilla and cashmere create a pleasurable woody and velvety accord. The whole fragrance smells soft and tranquil, with a dreamy, fairytale-like quality.
Each bottle of Aurora is adorned by hand with luxurious double velvet ribbon, then sealed with silver-gray wax by Charles himself. Leaf green represents the color of the Ammer forest, while lake -water blue represents the Moon King's ancestry--the House of Wittelsbach. A magnificent piece of art from start to finish and truly a collector's item.
