The fresh citrusy Mary Celestia fragrance opens with the smell of sparkling grapefruit and zesty citrus. The scent of rosewood is complimented by warm amber tones. Finally, the soft notes of rose and orange flower impart the timeless elegance of the original fragrance.In 1864 the Mary Celestia, a Civil War blockade runner sailing to Charleston, South Carolina, sank off the south shore of Bermuda. In 2011 an international team of Marine Archeologists discovered two intact bottles of perfume embossed Piesse and Lubin London, hidden away in the bow of the 150-year old shipwreck. Piesse and Lubin was a prominent perfume house on Bond Street in London sought after by the world's elite in the 1800's. After careful analysis of the bottles' precious content by drom fragrances, this rare scent was meticulously re-created and renamed Mary Celestia.
The artistic design of the medal decorating the bottle was inspired by a three-dollar coin depicting the shipwreck Mary Celestia, issued in 2006 by the Bermuda Monetary Authority. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the Mary Celestia fragrance will serve to fund the preservation and promotion of Bermuda's unique shipwreck heritage.
