About LiTA

Bogue say:

"Music and perfume share a lot of similarities, like notes and structure; they both help set the mood and create atmosphere. Using Duo’s music for inspiration, I wanted to produce something that echoed their dark, smokey, lustful sound. This is a perfume about love. A tale of our inner demons, rising to meet, in a new world of their making."

Reviews of LiTA

Dense tobacco notes, earthy patchouli & spicy aromatic smoke ground on an animalic interwoven chypre-base that is typical for Antonio Gardoni. A floral bouquet in the background brings light and sophistication to the dark. Reminds me a bit of T-Rex. The Gardoni dino with manners, something like that....
Thumbs up!

(Genre: Woody Oriental)

LiTA (sic) leaps off of my skin with the kind of thunderous, skip-to-the-base-notes fusillade familiar to admirers of Josh Lobb’s Slumberhouse scents. Nonetheless, Antonio Gardoni’s fingerprints are all over it: here are the mysterious and somehow archaic-smelling resins from Cologne Reloaded and the tuberose accord that hovers over MAAI; there the creosote of Tyrannosaurus Rex, and, perhaps most conspicuously, the dense burnt chocolate accord so central to his collaboration with Bruno Fazzolari, Cadavre Exquis. What immediately distinguishes LiTA, though, is a gargantuan civet that blares above the rest of this dense and busy composition like a bugle blast. Mind you, it’s not as if Gardoni hasn’t employed civet before, but in none of his previous compositions do I recall it being under so intense a spotlight.

I can’t accurately describe LiTA as a gourmand. However strong the reminiscence of chocolate, the dried fruit accord (I think Luca Turin may have once referred to it as “raisins”) from Cadavre Exquis is noticeably absent, and all that foetid civet ensures that LiTA smells anything but edible. In case you haven’t yet gleaned, this fragrance is far from shy. Wearing LiTA may entail the kind of confidence required for big old vintage “powerhouse” fragrances, or for more modern examples, the bolder, early Serge Lutens orientals or (again) Josh Lobb’s Norne, Jeke, or Ore. (The latter of which I might be very vaguely reminded of when wearing LiTA.)

A thumbs-up, then, for a bold, and perversely fun scent – as so many of Gardoni’s are – but I’m honestly not sure how many will find it wearable. If you do dare take LiTA out for a spin in public, be assured: you will be noticed.
