Although perhaps a peculiar starting point to develop a fragrance palette, butterflies have done a remarkable job of curating a wide range of fragrant floral, mint, grass, & herbaceous notes for a perfumer to work with.

PERFUMER’S INSPIRATION
Recent and aggressive development of Greenpoint’s waterfront has denuded the banks of the New Town Creek and East River of wild plant life and has had an immediate impact on migratory butterfly populations.

Reaching out to gardener neighbors, botanists and lepidopterists (butterfly specialists), butterfly gardens seemed to be a way we could help preserve butterflies and their habitat on an individual and community basis.

migration_moarchbutterflies_sm

Situated on the migratory path of the Monarch butterfly’s incredible journey from Canada to Mexico and back, the butterflies discovered the rich flora on Greenpoint’s water’s edge for themselves, establishing a marvel of nature with seasonal clouds of butterflies signalling the start of summer in this otherwise grey industrial corner of New York City.

Butterflies are sustained by a wide variety of colourful and fragrant nectar flowers and weeds of all types. Most unique is their relationship to the milkweed plant. Highly toxic to most animals, claiming the lives of horses that forage on milkweed, the butterfly is able to utilize the milkweed’s toxins to protect itself.

With an ability to safely ingest the toxins and move them to their exoskeleton, the butterflies themselves become toxic to predators to defend themselves and also lay eggs to become larvae on the milkweed plants to protect the next generation.
