Cestrum nocturnum enfleurage (night blooming jasmine)

Cestrum has a thick powdery scent halfway between heliotrope and honeysuckle. It's like the Anne Rice vampire of fragrant nocturnal flowers, luring with a nauseating, but no less seductive, sweetness, and a name well suited to its perfume: "night grave," "night hewn," "nocturnal cut."
