Poppy Soma


Poppy Soma part of the Les Potions Fatales collection explores the treacherous beauty and intriguing lore behind nine of the world’s most poisonous flowers.

Crafting Fragrant Femme Fatale


  • 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. 
  • Carefully crafted over the course of two years with accomplished notes from the fine fragrance partner Symrise, Poppy Soma explores the treacherous beauty and allure of one of the world’s most poisonous flowers: The Poppy.
  • A floriental, smoky, narcotic, spicy amber scent crafted using Sichuan Pepper, Curry Leaf, Red Pepper, Black Gardenia, Jasmine Sambac, Red Rose, Old Church Incense, Labdanum, Tuberose, Styrax, Musk Tonquin. 

A portion of proceeds from sales of this fragrance will benefit the American Association of Poison Control Centers.
