Eau de Parfum
Distinctive. Alluring. Clean. Lampblack is elegant and stylish; a drop which colours an occasion with a memorable charm.
“Lampblack launched my career as a perfumer. I created it for an exhibition of small ink paintings that featured opaque, black India Ink contrasting with transparent, vivid colours. The art was dark and shadowy but also glowed with light and colour. Lampblack gets its name from Lampblack pigment which is used to make India Ink. Historically, it was made with soot collected from oil-burning lamps. For the fragrance, I developed an accord that smelled like ink. I used the essential oil of nagarmotha, a root related to vetiver, which has a slight petroleum odour. I wanted it to have the almost industrial smell of a printmaker's workshop. As a contrast, I added a sparkling citrus accord to give it shimmering brightness."
