Revenants Vol III – Terror & Magnificence takes its inspiration from the works of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661- 1736) whose foreboding structures puncture London’s landscape.
By contrasting darkness with invigorating complexity, perfumer Pia Long has combined a vivid olfactory impression of the man, his works and his myth. Accords of Somalian incense, dry woods and wet stone meld with opium smoke, papyrus and kyphi, underpinned by a base of Haitian vetiver, labdanum, benzoin and myrrh resins. As perfumer Pia Long comments “the fragrance we created feels like it has always existed, as though we’ve conjured a myth into being from the ether”.
