Dirty Lemon brings something new and a bit naughty to lemons’ squeaky clean image. Cold-pressed lemon, Italian bergamot, lime and bitter citrus leaves are sullied with ylang-ylang, sexy patchouli, Australian sandalwood, juniper and feisty black pepper. Tart, delicious and just a little bit naughty! Inspired by the spontaneous and energetic aspects of lemons, but bringing something new and a little naughty to their squeaky clean image! Imagine a lemon tree baked in the sun – a sweltering afternoon picking fruit in citrus orchards with a rowdy bunch of friends, a few bottles of wine and the night that ensues.
Douglas Little describes Heretic’s ‘dirty series’ as taking classic beautiful ingredients and putting a new spin on them – letting their hair down, smudging their lipstick and exploring new territory.

ABOUT THE BRAND
Heretic – one who does not conform to the ideals or opinions of the masses; one who follows their own path.
Created in 2016 in New York by Douglas Little, Heretic is a natural, artisan, small batch fragrance collection. Based on the mysterious, sensual and feral aspects of nature, Heretic began with a conscious choice to do things a little differently. Provocative, challenging, unapologetic, visionary and beautiful – Douglas Little has created a rare, unusual and comprehensive collection. As Heretic boldly disrupts the status quo of the fragrance industry with their radical transparency, their fragrances delve into the esoteric world and the realms of homeopathy, ayerveda, and herbology.
Douglas made the choice to work with entirely natural materials – essential oils, concretes and absolutes (blended in non GMO, organic grape and sugarcane alcohol) using traditional perfumery techniques. Believing that nature gives us sexy and erotic scents, the Heretic perfume collection creates unique depth and complexity. “Natural fragrances are much like wine in that you can detect nuances of the plant, the soil, and its surroundings. They have characters that cannot be achieved with synthetic copies. These fragrances are alive, they create an olfactory fingerprint” Douglas Little.
HOW IT WEARS
Dirty Lemon wears incredibly well for a citrus fragrance, it is full of depth when on the skin – the journey is a lot of fun!
We love the concept of squeaky clean meets dirty in one fabulous lemony cocktail! And this perfume does not disappoint! We really enjoy the unusual blend and the aromatic elements of this perfume with the dirty creaminess of Ylang Ylang tempering the Lemon note.
