From The Mshumaa Fragrance Library:
Billie Holiday... the name conjures an exquisite kind of multisensory memory. The story goes that right before a performance, she burned her hair while styling it with a hot comb. A quick thinking friend ran out to another club a few doors down and bought a gardenia corsage from a coat check girl to hide the burned section of hair. Lady Day liked the sexy, intoxicatingly scented bloom so much she wore one nearly every performance after. Our custom blended scent honors the flower and the legend.
