An atmospheric brooding of Spanish moss, crumbling stone, old cement, red clay brick, and graveyard dirt.
St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 was founded in 1789. Just outside the French Quarter, it is one of New Orleans' most famous 'cities of the dead.' Residents include Bernard de Marigny, the French-Creole playboy who brought the game of craps to the United States; Barthelemy Lafon, the architect and surveyor who allegedly became one of Jean Lafitte's pirates; and the legendary Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau.
Note: Alkemia is a cruelty-free operation. No dead people (or their graves) were harmed in the making of this perfume.
A portion of proceeds from the sale of this scent will be donated to Save Our Cemeteries, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of 31 historic New Orleans cemeteries.
From the Autumn 2015 series. 5 ml. amber bottle.
