The evening after his visit to the Hokke Hall, he beheld her in his slumbers, as he wished, but at the same moment the terrible face of the woman that he had seen on that fearful evening in Rokjiô again appeared before him; hence he concluded that the same mysterious being who tenanted that dreary mansion had taken advantage of his fears and had destroyed his beloved Evening Glory.

Murasaki Shikibu, Tale of Genji, Before 1021 AD.

Evening Glory is the name of a woman that Genji had fallen in love with, that was possessed and killed by the spirit of a jealous noble woman. While Evening Glory was named for a white flower, we have chosen a deep, burnt plum shade for this tinted balm. This shade recalls warm summer evenings, the time when Evening Glory was attacked by a ghost.
