Brand: Darling Clandestine
Scent Description: In an interview on Working with Monolids, I mentioned “Bicep of the Parrot #42” as a fake example of a designer fragrance. Now it’s totally real. I kept picturing a green jungle bird in a mosaic of a fountain filled with copper pennies. I dunno, man, that’s just what I pictured, okay? So I went for the metallic overtone of copper, splashing water, high breezes, and an elaborate concoction of sun-baked jungle plants and flowers. So there you have it—description wins over “notes” this time again.
