    Default NEW: Timothy Han Edition Perfumes - The Decay of the Angel For Women!

    From NST:

    London-based niche line Timothy Han Edition Perfumes has introduced The Decay of the Angel, a new fragrance for women inspired by the Yukio Mishima novel.

    Inspired by Yukio Mishima’s 1971 novel of the same name, “The Decay of the Angel” is a rich exotic burnt floral fragrance with a subtle headiness that comes from the smell of desire infused by flowers on the wane; the scent of a falling angel.

    For this fragrance Timothy Han Edition Perfumes has collaborated with Warsaw based artist Gosia Sobczak who has created a series of illustrations that depict the five signs of the decay of an angel; Decay, Diaphoresis, Dirt, Dissatisfaction, Darkness.

    These 5 Stages are reflected throughout the fragrance which turn a classic rose floral into an intense hedonistic experience.

    The result is a powerful scent composed with the sweetness of flowers on the edge of decay laid over traces of fire and ash provided by Cade to bring a dark and dirty edge.

    This is bound together with Hedione, the only known fragrance ingredient to induce arousal, and musk to evoke the notion of sweat and sex as fulfillment of a fallen angel.

    ”This is a take on a rose floral that will divide opinion.

    By introducing dark undertones of sex and ash to what is often seen as a traditional and safe scent, we have created a perfume for the outspoken.” – Timothy Han

    Additional notes include mandarin, neroli, ylang-ylang, frankincense, jasmine, acacia, oud, cedar, patchouli, tonka and labdanum.

    Timothy Han Edition Perfumes The Decay of the Angel is available now at Twisted Lily, $185 for 60 ml Eau de Parfum.

    I have to admit that I am really curious about this one. The fragrance sounds quite gothic and I love Yukio Mishima, so this could be a contender.
