Night-blooming cereus

Cereus doesn’t sound too ‘sexy’, but Queen of the Night…’? We’re half-way to falling in love with this ingredient for its exotic name, never mind the sweetly floral, vanilla-y fragrance which can be so captivating, in a perfume.  This is also sometimes known as ‘The Honolulu Queen Flower’;  the large, short-lived flowers of the cactus-like plant bloom for just six hours, opening in the evening and closing by dawn.  Some flower just once a year, for a single night – a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pleasure that happily can be captured in a bottle and enjoyed 24/7…
