DITA VON TEESE X HERETIC PARFUM / SCANDALWOOD
For the first time in rollerball form!
A slight deviation… Heretic prides themselves on working with naturally derived materials, but this time the world famous burlesque performer Dita Von Teese lured Heretic in a slightly different direction for this artistic collaboration called Scandalwood.
Naturally occurring Musk notes can only be achieved working with ingredients that are derived from animals. Heretic is completely cruelty free, so for this particular fragrance, Heretic had to rely on certain synthetic notes to achieve the Musk chord they wanted in this seductive scent. They then combined those musky notes with naturally derived materials, in Heretic’s usual fashion, and the result is a mysterious, clean fragrance that dives deep into velvety Sandalwood, Roses wrapped in Leather, and sparks of Coriander.
This scent is seductive, creamy and musky. Soft and sensual like the gentlest touch on soft skin, but with a darker, more alluring base full of mysterious depth. Scandalwood is non-toxic and free from phthalates, parabens, and EDTA. It is a safe synthetic fragrance that is not 100% natural.

HOW IT WEARS
Sandalwood wears beautifully on the skin – good silage and longevity, an intimate scent on the skin. The powdery and milky Sandalwood shines and is the hero of the fragrance, mixed with the musky note and a hint of sparkle from the Rose and Coriander Seed. As a perfume oil, this scent will last about 4 hours on the skin.
We love the soft, milky Sandalwood that really shines in this scent giving such a soft, velvety feel. This perfume is one to wear when you want to feel sensual and luxurious. We also love Dita, so this fragrance is a big yes from us!
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.
