Timothy Han Edition
The Decay Of The Angel - Eau de Parfum
A rich and exotic burnt floral fragrance with a subtle headiness that comes from desire infused by flowers on the wane. Inspired by Yukio Mishima’s 1971 novel of the same name, these are the final longings of a descending angel.
Like the novel this fragrance explores notions of decadence and innocence, birth and rebirth. It is about the inescapable beauty of the natural in all it's forms.

Middle Notes: Sambac Jasmin, Acacia, Cade
Base Notes: Oudh, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Tonka, Labdanum
She Came To Stay - Eau de Parfum
For the freethinker amongst you. Inspired by Simone de Beauvoir’s 1943 existential novel of the same name, “She Came to Stay” is a gender neutral perfume that echoes the evolving nature of our sense of self when faced with a world on the edge of change.
The semi-autobiographical novel tells the story of de Beauvoir's relationship with the French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre around the turn of the decade of a 1940s Paris. Alongside de Beauvoir's second novel, this highly influential novel is arguably considered to mark the start of modern feminism.
This perfume explores notions of freedom and sexuality that the protagonist pursued by taking a number of classical fragrance notes and giving them a unique twist that echoes the freethinking spirit of de Beauvoir and Sartre.
Top Notes: Geranium, Basil, Lemon
Middle Notes: Indonesian Clove, Nutmeg
Base Notes: Patchouli, Vetiver, Labdanum, Oakmoss, Cedarwood
Against Nature - Eau de Parfum
For the unconventionally decadent. Inspired by Joris-Karl Huysmans’ 1884 novel of the same name which broke from his naturalist roots, this is a decadent re-interpretation of nature at its most ornate.
The sprawling reach of this little known novel can be seen as that poisonous French novel that inspires Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray to depart on a life of decadence. The French poet and philosopher Paul Valéry called it his "bible".
Against Nature is a blur between the natural and the artificial, ultimately echoing an alternate beauty. This gender neutral fragrance features leafy green foliage, moist soil & earthy mosses underscored with notes of cold metal, blood and lacquer.
Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Lemon, Juniper, Green, Metal
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Lacquer
Base Notes: Musk, Vetiver, Amber, Sandalwood, Patchouli
On The Road - Eau de Parfum
For your inner rebel - Inspired by Jack Kerouac’s 1951 novel of the same name, “On the Road” is a unisex perfume that polarises by telling a tale of restlessness and an unbridled desire to experience the beat counterculture of a Jazz fuelled post-war America. Kerouac's iconic novel gave a voice to a generation that is still felt today.
Experience the second edition of On The Road as a road trip in scent across a Post-War America. The scent unfolds on your skin to trace the journey of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty from the hot July streets of a New York City summer to the whiskey bars and wheat fields of a Middle America before finally ending up amongst the cedar forests and citrus trees of the Pacific Coast.

Heart Of Darkness - Eau de Parfum
