Inspired by the forgotten story of May Coyle and Thomas Howard in their most romantic 1905 Boston prison escape. May’s daring plan to smuggle saws into the prison in a wedding cake, led them both to escape the same night. The nationwide press coverage that followed made them folk heroes of the day, even more so when May was acquitted of all charges with the support of the nation behind her. May’s bravery was translated into Love & Crime resulting in a deep-gourmande floral; The dark notes of cocoa juxtapose against the brightness of red mandarin and pink pepper to act as a metaphor illustrating how life’s cross roads can reveal hidden layers within our personalities.
