Eau de Parfum - Junky

$80.00 $110.00

A complex, unique fragrance for men and women from Jardins D’Écrivains. Named for William S. Burroughs' first novel, Junky, which describes the harsh reality of addiction. The top notes include the subtlest hint of fresh hemp with rosewood and galbanum. The mysterious middle notes bring in the creamy scents of gardenia, iris and violet, which then mingle with the dry-wood base notes of cashmeran, cedar, and cade, softened by the frankincense and sweet myrrh resins and the aroma of Javanese vetiver. Burroughs was the most experimental and avant-garde figure of the Beat Generation; arguably the one who went furthest in developing the complexity of the novel. In his youth he escaped through reading Oscar Wilde, and he went on to lead a bohemian lifestyle, delighting in extreme experiences. Junky is unashamedly different and invites originality and "factualism", as Burroughs might have put it.

Made in France.
