Etat Libre d'Orange
Hedonik Divine Perversion was released in 2021, created by Francesca Bianchi. Its focus is leather. From the perfumer - "I dedicated this perfume to the leather note, being this material the central component of the brand - as well as one of my favorite notes. Leather is in fact crucial in this composition, by standing out from the opening to the drydown. I like to play with contradictions, so I used sweet, fruity, caramel notes on one side, and intense leathery and ambery notes on the other as a contrast. I also love to use animalic notes, that add intensity, a sense of humanity and carnality, that makes the perfume irresistibly sensual."
Notes of raspberry, pink pepper, caramel, iris, rose, leather, amber, animalics and woods.
Fragrantica - "Beautiful leather fragrance! The opening is a fresh & tart pop of pink peppercorn & raspberry. On my skin, the sublime soft leather note quickly asserts itself. The leather has a kind of halo, or aftertaste of caramel & a hint of rose water. The leather is smooth, rich, and long lasting. The dry-down stays warm leather on me. This will be a wonderful fall fragrance, perfect for fireside, Halloween, etc."
Fragrantica - "This is a grown-up adult fruity opening. Dark chocolates with a fruity creme center. It has a little heat, a little warmth from the pepper. That keeps some of the sweetness in check and adds a bite. Dry down and now I’m sitting on a soft brown leather 60s couch, there’s a low fire in the modernist hearth. I have the empty chocolate wrappers scattered around me but chocolate has mixed with the warmth and the fire and become caramel and the full fruity blast has mellowed. The pepper bite stays. This isn’t a going-out fragrance, it’s for staying in. It’s for putting on when you want someone to be drawn to you."
