The Decay Of The Angel - Eau De Parfum
A rich and exotic burnt floral fragrance with a subtle headiness that comes from desire infused by flowers on the wane. Inspired by Yukio Mishima’s 1971 novel of the same name, these are the final longings of a descending angel.
The Decay of the Angel is based on the 5 stages of a falling angel:
STAGE 1 | Decay
STAGE 2 | Diaphoresis
STAGE 3 | Dirt
STAGE 4 | Dissatisfaction
STAGE 5 | Darkness
These 5 Stages are reflected throughout the fragrance which turn a traditionally rich and exotic floral built around Sambac Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang and Rose into an intense hedonistic experience. The result is a powerful scent composed of the sweetness of flowers on the edge of waning coupled with hints of natural Oudh, Atlas Cedarwood, Frankincense and Spanish Cade to confer a distinct and unique impression of charred wood. Musk and Hedione bring a dark and dirty edge of desire. This is bound together with Hedione, the only known fragrance ingredient to induce arousal1, and musk to evoke the dark and dirty edge of desire and the fulfilment of a fallen angel.
