Moonlight is sculpture; sunlight is painting.
— Nathaniel Hawthorne
The poetry of the moon, its identification with the feminine, its tidal power, its constant yet changing luminosity: all of these inform Moon Glory, The Harmonist’s ode to Yin energy, a lush composition of warm, resinous notes and deep, underlying florals.Shop
Recalling the intoxicating scent of flowers at dusk, this sensual fragrance captures that in-between moment after the sun has disappeared below the horizon, yet before night falls; a fleeting time when the changing light intensifies the scent in the air.
Moon Glory combines ingredients that reflect Yin energy: distinctive Hawaiian Jasmine, the alluring Queen of the Night flower, and sultry Passionflower.
Accompanied by notes of Lychee, Organic Honey, and Ylang-ylang, this delicate bouquet is warmed with amber musk. Its complexity reveals itself gradually, like the night sky.

When the petals of the heart unfold,
