Not only The House of Opulence is inspired by flowers for its fragrances, so were (and are) many  famous perfumers as well as composers. A lot of classical music for example was inspired by flowers, such as the piece Le Violette by Scarlatti. This is the first post of the series “Scent & Music”, stay tuned for more…

Scarlatti composed Le Violette as part of one of his best Operas, named Pirro e Demetrio (1694). Here is a link to listen to the piece, as performed by South Korean-born, Canadian soprano Stephanie Kim.
