EAU DE PARFUM
Family: Oriental floral
Perfumer: Olivia Larson
Notes: Bergamot, tuberose, lavender, cypriol, cognac
Inspired by the indigenous customs of the Hawaiian islands, where spirits can be found everywhere--in animals, ocean waves and the sky. Kupaloke is an unconventional tuberose fragrance that can be worn and enjoyed by both men and women. The sweet, sugary, natural tuberose is deliciously heady, and thankfully not headachy. Cypriol imparts fascinating smoky, leathery qualities. Leis made of tuberoses symbolize love, congratulations, friendship and making a commitment. We are honored that the perfumer created this fragrance exclusively for AVÉ PARFUM.
From the Travel Collection. Inspired by HAWAII.
This fragrance is 100% natural. Slight separation may naturally occur. We suggest a light shake of the bottle before applying.
Kupaloke, the beautiful flower girl
Kai, fisherman from the Sea, and secret lover
And so it goes till this day the fishermen can hear faint strains from Kai’s ukulele as they get closer to the tiny island in the Pacific accompanied by the smell of freshly baked vanilla cakes, with hints of caramel and cinnamon, sweet and citrus aromas followed by a heavy rich floral scent from the tuberose and orchid lei’s being woven. At an early age, Kupaloke’s mother taught her to weave and make beautiful lei garlands which she would take to the market place to sell.
Now let me tell you a story. Kupaloke’s hand was promised, unknown to her to the Chief’s Son, Ailanee as her father had made an alliance between the two villages before he passed away. The Chief was getting ready to celebrate this matrimonial alliance. However, Kupalokewas in love with Kai and their love was a bond that was meant to last forever. The distraught Kupaloke could not bear the thought of marrying someone else. The Chief found out about the secret love affair that was harboring between the two and ordered to kill Kai. So late that night Kai and Kupaloke decided to elope in his small fishing boat; but word broke out of their plan and they were being chased by the Chief and his men. Kai prayed to the Sea God who sent big waves to protect them so that they could escape to the next island and live happily ever after. Out of the sky came big bolts of lightning and claps of thunder as Kai’s prayers were answered and a heavy storm fell upon the seas, with waves crashing the Chief’s boats and sending his men back ashore. Kai and Kupaloke managed to escape and live happily together.
