Contradictions In ILK is a niche fragrance house with a collection of 8 layerable unisex scents, comprising of 4 matching pairs, each pair featuring contradictory but uniquely harmonious perfumes inspired by an emotion or personality trait. This scent story is set in a palazzo in Venice, home to Cassanova - the most famous libertine of all time. You can smell his favourite tipple of cordial orgeat - the bitter almond, orange flower and brandy tickle your lips and nose, as well as your other senses. There’s an intoxicating smell of gunpowder from the duelling pistols wistfully intermingling with the beeswax candles.
Libertine's contradicting paired scent is Virtuous. Each pair is harmoniously crafted so that each highlights and subdues certain qualities of the other, to create a unique third or fourth scent depending on which way round you layer.
