Even though we won’t often admit it, many of us are romantics at heart. We love love, and we love happy endings. Part of Essentique’s new line of perfumes, 1001 Nights draws out the romantic in all of us. Inspired by One Thousand and One Nights, a West Asian collection of folktales, this exotic perfume will have you falling in love every time you put it on.
One Thousand and One Nights centers around the story of a king who marries a new woman each night and has her killed the next day. After this goes on for years, a beautiful woman named Scheherazade volunteers to marry him. She spends her first night telling him a story, but stops when dawn breaks. The king allows her live for another day so that she can finish the story, and this repeats.
After one thousand and one nights and one thousand stories, Scheherazade tells the king that she has no more stories left to tell. However, over the course of those many nights, the king had fallen in love with Scheherazade, and so he let her live and made her his queen.
When you wear 1001 Nights, you will feel like Scheherazade as she sits by a fire, telling her stories, knowing that she is the most captivating woman in the world. You have the complete and undivided attention of anyone you talk to. The mysterious scent of 1001 Nights draws them in, and your words keep them there.
Sandalwood and pure Egyptian musk warm your audience, while tuberose and neroli sweeten the air. The result is an irresistible combination that will have anyone you talk to falling in love with you. Surround yourself with it, and you’ll almost be able to feel the intimate heat of a crackling fire and eyes on you, and the seduction of One Thousand and One Nights.
Just like Scheherazade’s tales, no one will ever forget you when you wear the scent of 1001 Nights. Try it, and find your own story to tell.
