DITA VON TEESE + HERETIC PARFUM = SCANDALWOOD
Heretic Parfum pride themselves on working only with naturally derived materials, but this time the world-famous burlesque performer Dita Von Teese lured them in a slightly different direction for this artistic collaboration, aptly named Scandalwood.
Since naturally occurring musk notes can only be created from animal derivatives, Heretic created a synthetic musk accord for this fragrance in order to achieve the exact feel they wanted for this seductive scent. They then combined those musk notes with naturally derived materials, in their usual fashion. The result is a mysterious, clean fragrance that dives deep into velvety sandalwood, roses and sparkles of coriander. It’s a scent fit for a sex siren, created with the eye of a visionary. A soft, red-lipped whisper with an all-consuming allure.
Scandalwood is non-toxic and free from phthalates, parabens, and EDTA. It is a safe synthetic fragrance that is not 100% natural.
Top: Coriander, Atlas Cedar
Middle: Bulgarian Rose, Ylang Ylang Absolute
Base: Sandalwood, Orris Butter, Labdanum, Myrrh, White Musk
HOW IT WEARS
Sandalwood wears beautifully, an intimate scent on the skin. The creamy, earthy sandalwood shines and is the hero of the fragrance, sweetened slightly by the Bulgarian rose and ylang ylang. Coriander seed and myrrh add spice to the scent, labdanum giving it deep, resinous grounding. The musk accord and orris butter emphasise the soft sensuality of the sandalwood perfectly. This fragrance is perfectly balanced and blended, and will last a good 6-8 hours on the skin, depending on your skin type.
Scandalwood is one of our bestsellers here at Lore for good reason. It’s sultry, soft and skin-like with just a hint of spice and a subtle yet very much detectable depth. With just the right amount of sillage, it lasts well on the skin, – it never overwhelms or feels ‘heavy’, but leaves the wonderful wafting scent of milky sandalwood behind you wherever you go. We also of course adore Dita, so Scandalwood is a big yes from us on all fronts!
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.
