    Details

    Inspired by Yukio Mishima's final 1971 work of the same name and published as the fourth and final novel in the Sea of Fertility tetralogy, The Decay of the Angel is about the incarnation of our humanity that encourages us to find the beauty in the failings and the frailty of flesh - it is ultimately a story of birth and more importantly rebirth.

    The fragrance is based on the 5 stages of a falling angel:

    1. Decay
    2. Diaphoresis
    3. Dirt
    4. Dissatisfaction
    5. Darkness

    These 5 Stages are reflected throughout the fragrance which turn a traditionally rich and exotic floral built around Sambac Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang and Rose into an intense hedonistic experience. The result is a powerful scent composed of the sweetness of flowers on the edge of waning coupled with hints of natural Oudh, Atlas Cedarwood, Frankincense and Spanish Cade to confer a distinct and unique impression of charred wood.

    Musk and Hedione bring a dark and dirty edge of desire. This is bound together with Hedione, the only known fragrance ingredient to induce arousa and musk to evoke the dark and dirty edge of desire and the fulfilment of a fallen angel.

    Reviews

    The Telegraph:

    "A spritz of The Decay of the Angel in the office this week led to a bevy of passionate opinions and responses. It's one of those Marmite scents that you love or hate, and I'm in the former category - I could spray all day... Controversial you see."Spritz as and when needed.

    The Perfume Society:

    "Loving The Decay of the Angel... really addictive."

     

    Ingredient Philosophy

    Set in a base of 100% certified organic grape alcohol, The Decay Of the Angel is the first fragrance by Timonthy Han/Edition to use two nature identical fragrance ingredients.

    Ambrettolide is an ethical substitute for musk which is traditionally sourced from the Musk Deer, an animal protected under CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) as endangered;

    Hedione while occurring naturally is not commercially extracted as a fragrance ingredient yet plays a key role in helping to bind and enhance the overall fragrance composition to tell a more compelling story.
