Heretic Parfum

Pistil Whip


100% Natural Eau de Parfum

Late one night, Douglas was walking from the subway to his studio in Brooklyn and was mugged at gun point.  After he surrendered his wallet, he was pistol-whipped and left in a heap.  After he recovered from this traumatizing incident he experienced something called olfactory hallucination and for weeks after the event woke up to the smell of tuberose and gardenia, but the flowers were no where to be found.  

After he saw a few doctors, he learned that traumatic events, especially physical ones, can trigger scent-based hallucinations.  It eventually went away but he experience stuck with him and became the inspiration for this scent.  A play on words, Pistil Whip is an explosion of lush florals that collapse into peppery smoke and mysterious notes of black tea.  The top of the fragrance is a spicy combination of pink pepper and ripe bergamot.  At its heart lie tuberose absolute, violet leaf and tiarre flower, and the base is rooted in deep, grassy vetiver and the smoky finish of lapsang souchong absolute.
