Margaretha Geertruida Zelle was born in the Netherlands, of a Dutch father and a Javanese mother. She was to draw her dancer and courtesan name, Mata Hari, meaning the eye of day in Malay, from her exotic origins. A nice discovery for this famous spy, whose captivating beauty and taste for adventure built up an out of the common destiny. That’s why the most exhilarating of flowers, the spicy rose is at the heart of this mysterious perfume. Oriental floral, it distills its multiple facets mixing jasmine, black currant, musk, for a fatally glamorous aspect.

Originality: rose, cinnamon and sandalwood. Roses usually represent a sense of fragility and sensitivity. In 1876, we combined the Moldavian rose, cinnamon and sandal. A spicy rose illustrates the Asian origin of Mata Hari, sandal is the primary wood in Asia, and cinnamon suggests the scents of the kitchen.


Moods: glamorous, seduction, extreme sensuality

I like the idea behind Histoires des Parfums-stories to be read on skin. Mata Hari was Dutch, married to a dour Scot. She was beautiful and exotic and I wish her history was better known. The fragrance is potent and exotic and lasts for about 12 hours on me. I'd love to smell this on a man. It is deep and rich and I like it a lot. I chose 1826 instead but this would have been an excellent choice. I think if you like Penhaligons fragrances you'd enjoy this, too. Lovers of Shlimar could give it a try. The rose in it is so deep and so satisfying. An underrated beauty-just like its namesake.
