Les Potions Fatales is a new prestige fragrance series by PARFUMS QUARTANA that explores the treacherous beauty and intriguing lore behind nine of the world’s most poisonous flowers. At once tantalizing and perilous, these mortal fleurs have been used to nefarious ends throughout history. Yield to their charms and surrender to a fragrant femme fatale (or homme fatale) — seductive on the outside but ultimately dark, sinister, and dangerous.

It is said that the Lily of the Valley sprung from the eyes of the weeping Virgin Mary during the crucifixion of Jesus, and thus has traditionally been a flower of purity and innocence. In order to put emphasis on its potential use as a fatal poison, we corrupted its sweet fragrant white-floral essence by enveloping it in a “black shroud” and reinforcing that with a base of black leather accord. We also added a wet aspect to suggest tears.
