Vengeance is sweet. This scent, delicately painted in dark hues, stylistically evokes a (improbable and imaginary) portrait of Clytemnestra holding her blade, dipped in Agamemnon’s blood, in the fluffy, impressionistic style of Renoir. Cassis steeps in violet water with plum, lending this fragrance it’s piquant-pastille contrast. Sultanene’s synthesizing sweetness tackles the diverse, diffuse potency of a caramel-rich cognac, searing, chalky styrax and the downy heat of ambrette seed and marries these three quantities as one. Honey and purple iris are an unlikely pair, yet neither overwhelms the other; instead, honey seems thinned and dazzling light in iris’ company, while iris is profusely sweet and powdery, yet still enchantingly contemporary. No doubt tuberose bolsters iris, the fruity, raspy tang of the former enhancing the gauzy, ephemeral outlines of the latter. Patchouli and labdanum smolder, brightly colored streams of smoke that expand and contract the whole of this fragrance. Suede is shot through with a neon thread of saffron, and polished by beeswax. Sandalwood and vetiver ground this fragrance with a light touch, preserving this romantic, effervescent composition. Venetian Belladonna is a sort of pretty violence that is effortlessly enticing. Naughty never smelt so sweet.
