SYNOPSIS: A brilliantly dark graphic novel, A City On Fire is the story of two match-makers. Rupert literally fabricates matches in a factory on the waterfront while Frances writes a dating column for the city’s newspaper. Both are recluses who haunt the night’s shadows, observing clandestine activities from afar but never partaking. That changes one fortuitous evening when they are both witness to the same high-profile murder and are forced to come together as an unlikely vigilante pair in order to save their own names.

A City On Fire opens like a match being struck – a blast of sulfur and ash. Aromatic and almost bitter at the beginning, the fragrance continues to develop, slowly revealing its sweeter more resinous notes, enrichened by berries and spice. This scent lasts incredibly well on the skin (around 6-8 hours) and really takes you on a journey throughout its wear, shapeshifting as time goes on.

This fragrance is a smoky masterpiece – starting brash and loud but dying down to a bed of resinous, sweet hot coals. A City on Fire is the perfect fragrance for going out in – for making an explosive entrance and then a mysterious, quiet getaway later in the night. There’s something distinctly alluring about this scent – there’s a raw, rugged sensuality to it that is kind of addictive.
