Spite EdP: a perfume about adaptation
Spite Eau de Parfum is not an intense variation of Spite Eau de Toilette, but rather a new adaptation and a different fragrance altogether and the second installment in a broader, ongoing series of work exploring the many facets of spiteful urges and their consequences, as well as the situations within which they manifest.
The narrative informing the composition of Spite brings together four spiteful spirits from history, literature and Greek mythology. Every note you might discover in the perfume’s trajectory relates back to these characters - Shakespeare’s Viola, Oscar Wilde, Mary Magdalene and Cynara from Greek Mythology.
The exploration of green notes in Spite EdP have no sylvan freshness or diaphanous fairy wings. They’re all sepia-toned, withered and thorny. Accompanied by a scorn of cold, bloodless floral notes and earthy vegetation which surrounds a surprisingly soft centre that you only catch the briefest flashes of.
