Top: Mandarin, bergamot, dragon fruit
Mid: Wild orchid, basil, peony
Dry: Cedarwood, skin musks
A velvety body milk with a dynamic scent inspired by the frank, action-oriented prose of Ernest Hemingway, a master of transmitting emotion without resorting to flowery adornment. The Verb fragrance bursts forth with fresh notes of bergamot, mandarin and basil before adding layers and complexity by way of cedarwood and skin musks—at once addictive and enlivening.
Top: Neroli, black currant
Mid: Honeysuckle, petitgrain, dewy violet
Dry: Crisp amber, cedarwood
Set in the forests of Arcadia, this elegant orange blossom scent is roused by the first meeting of Androcles and the Lion. The gorgeous initial bloom plays with dewy violet, petitgrain and honeysuckle before being rounded by the warmth of crisp amber and cedarwood. The moral of the famous Aesop fable is kindness—Androcles removes a thorn from the lion’s paw—a notion as lovely as the fragrance.
Top: Bergamot, ambrette seeds, cassis
Mid: Tiger orchid, pink lotus, jasmine petals
Dry: Patchouli, liquid musks, white cedarwood
The airy beauty of jasmine petals and tiger orchid meets the sexy, undeniable warmth of liquid musks and white cedarwood. It's a sophisticated fragrance for the senses, for the gods and worthy of the myths it will create.
Top: Bergamot, pepper
Mid: Capri fig, jasmine, violet
Dry: Tonka beans, sandalwood
A seductive scented body milk inspired by the D.H. Lawrence poem "Figs", the fragrance beckons with initial fresh green notes of Capri fig before blossoming into an alluring blend of jasmine, pepper and sandalwood—the kind of mysterious scent perfect for assuming a Pseudonym.
Top: Mandarin, rhubarb
Mid: Peony, pink lotus
Dry: Patchouli, blond woods, liquid musks
Witty, mysterious, captivating yet imbued with a sense of humor, the Raven has held a mythic status in a variety of literature from the dark leanings of Edgar Allan Poe to the clever depictions atop Native American totem poles. This stunning peony-patchouli vies for the same complexity of character—the seduction lasts long before the first notes of mandarin and rhubarb, developing into a heady olfactive brew underlined by blond woods and liquid musks.
Top: Sicilian lemon, cassis, pear
Mid: Lotus blossom, peony, Centifolia rose petals
Dry: Cashmere woods, spring musks, vanilla orchid
An olfactive ode to Rrose Sélavy (a pun of Eros, C’est la Vie), the feminine alter ego of the author, artist and provocateur Marcel Duchamp, this fresh rose fragrance is as playful as its muse. Petals of Centifolia roses sparkle with peony and Sicilian lemon, all above a seductive base of spring musks and cashmere woods.
