Lost in Heaven

(5 customer reviews)

Extrait de parfum

Accords: Sweet, spicy, animalic, floral 
Mood: comforting, sensual, disobedient

The double nature of any human being: longing to perfection, innocence, absence of mistake, to a place uncontaminated by sin from one side, and the inevitable fallibility and impossibility of amending mistakes. The combination of white florals and animalic facets represents this dichotomy, as an invitation to accept both idealism and imperfection as a very specific human feature.

Notes: grapefruit, green tangerine, orange flower absolute, jasmin, ylang extra, mimosa, magnolia, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, ambergris, musk, castoreum, beeswax, iris butter, ciste absolute, opoponax, heliotrope, vetyver, sandalwood, patchouli, tonka bean.

This is an extrait de parfum, so use sparingly as the concentration is 25%. It has a great longevity (an average of 12h).

Lost in Heaven depicts a dream sequence of an adult getting lost in paradise. 

It represents the complexity of feelings conveying both the longing for a place of uncontaminated innocence and unconditional love and the inevitable and controversial burden of life, made up of feelings of sin and guilt – real, or even worse, imaginary.

This dichotomy, which sits at the back of anyone’s soul, is portrayed by a selection of the most angelic notes: beautiful Orange Flower and Jasmine absolutes, together with soft Heliotrope, smooth Sandalwood, sweet Tonka Bean and many other notes that I consider paradisiac. 

The darker side is conveyed in a much more subtle way, not immediately detectable, via cumin and other spices, and a large selection of animalistic notes, including a reconstruction of Tonkin Musk. 

I thought of naming this perfume ‘Feeling Good’, as that is its purpose: to make you feel as you might in paradise, not a fake, imaginary one, but a real place where you finally cope with the darker side of you, with the heavy baggage that you carry with you. 

Fragile, sensual, emotional, though not technically a gourmand, it reminds me of a cake, rich in spices and with an orange blossom aroma: not haute patisserie but the archetypical smell of a cake made by Mommy, with only good things in it.

    Absolutely amazing!!, sweet, ambery, spicy., slightly animalic…
    The prominent cumin is nicely balanced wit the sweetness. It has a classical vibe with a (hard to describe) FB DNA,
    I really love it

    I purchased a set of 6 samples, Francesca’s perfumes are really particular, complex and last forever. Lost in heaven is my favourite one: a truly unisex fragrance (usually what I like my husband wouldn’t wear and viceversa, but this one…both of us love it!!), so warm and comforting, but sexy at the same time….well done Francesca, you are really great!!
