CILICE by Euphorium Brooklyn is sourced from the finest rare oils, tinctures and absolutes using the traditional euphoria komodo process. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY. CILICE features incense, beeswax, sweet balsam, wounded wood and leather accord.

Euphorium Brooklyn reimagines Victorian-era perfumery. Based on historical detail, fiction and non-fiction merge in this strange tale of three perfumers from the 1860′s. CILICE is the first chapter of this journey. Perfumer Monsieur Etienne Chevreuil created an immersive art form he called, “Tableaux Olfactif ” in which he would perfume an empty salon to recreate a specific environment and scene that would unfold over time and be told by scent and scent alone.

With CILICE, Etienne sought to capture and convey the sensuality of the environment and intensity of emotion when a young nun is encountered in her cloistered cell. An intimate and ecstatic moment is observed as she becomes transcendent.

“Velvet curtains, crisp linen, dusty gilt, crumbling plaster and parchment are exalted to a subtle perfume by warm shafts of sunlight. As fragrant tears are drawn from the wounds of ancient Agarwood, Benzoin and Olibanum trees, the Cilice releases a purer self that transcends her suffering. Bound tight by soft leather, a note of rusted metal sinks into deeper notes of warm skin and animal musk to discipline the flesh and release the soul. Her sweet release, an ecstatic moment of extreme emotion and sensation is captured in the deepest memory of scent. A child of the little flower, I now know her Ecstasy of Devotion…I am at once both soothed and intrigued by the dry air that carries in its memory a myriad of fragrant notes that weave an exquisite tapestry of incense, wax, wood and leather. Patiently crafted by countless wisps of rich incense, the patina of time is lifted by the soft, effusive light of sweet beeswax candles. Something darker, both sensual and primitive, compels a deeper breath.”
– Perfumer Etienne Chevreuil.  The Ecstasy of Devotion (1856)

Enigmatic Portraits: Tal Shpantzer Photography


Text by Stephanie Valente

Tal Shpanzter’s photography is ethereal and mysterious. Longtime Greenpoint resident, the photographer uses the neighborhood as an inspiration board for portraits, landscapes, and the human figure. From dreamy stills to mysterious-but-menacing photo essays, her talent is deep.

What drew me to Tal’s work is part of her artist statement: “being drawn to work that is yet undefined.” I, too, am drawn to those secret or developing moments. A small, pure piece that blossoms into something other worldly.
