FRAGRANCES FOR WHEN YOU WANT TO SMELL LIKE SPRING
“Maverick perfumer Douglas Little poses one very unorthodox question...What would it smell like if a flower had an orgasm?” -Refinery 29
Spring has long been considered the season of new growth, a harbinger of positive change and possibilities, the time of year when everything is born again. Emerging from the safety of your bedroom after a long winter can feel a bit like being resurrected (like Jesus, on Easter), or resurfacing from the underworld (like Persephone, whose annual return would bring fresh flower blossoms), or at least waking up from a very long sleep: wide-eyed, bewildered, as if you're seeing everything around you for the very first time. Where do you even begin? Start by shaking the cobwebs out. Take off that turtleneck; you won't be needing it where we're going. Say "what up?" to the sun, and your pasty arms, for the first time in six months. Once that first 65-degree day of the season hits and you exchange your dark winter mood for a sundress and a cocktail at the door, there's no shame in wanting to feel — and smell — like a brighter version of you, one who just sprung headfirst from a bouquet or rolled in a field of poppies.
FLORGASM BY HERETIC:
With this fragrance, maverick perfumer Douglas Little poses one very unorthodox question: What would it smell like if a flower had an orgasm? The answer: a cascade of spicy pink pepper and bergamot at the top, followed by the heady, milky richness of orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine, and ylang-ylang. Letting the raw floral notes take center stage meant lowering the alcohol content of the perfume itself, resulting in a pale, milky formula that only serves to make Florgasm all the more salacious.SHOP FLORGASM
