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)

Look Book I shot for Hanaa-fu Japan #ShowroomSeven Model Melinda Elvenes

The Hanaa-fu brand offers women sculptured And beautifully detailed handbag designs; when she carries a Hanaa-fu handbag, a woman feels like she is wearing an art piece.

The brand ‘s Japanese essence is seen in its unique pairing of tradition and modern sensibility: in its attention to elegant design craft as well as in its flare of a particular Japanese pop modernism.

The brand name is ‘’Hanaa-fu’’ is derived from the names of the four seasons in the Japanese language. Spring(Haru), Summer(Natsu), Autumn(Aki), Winter(Fuyu), the first letters of which create the brand name.

The 5 looks I shot were customized to the designers collections and her inspiration of the Chinese Zodiac.

I  translated Jade’s five collections into the natural elements of fire, water, earth, metal and wood and found ways to connect the stories in Jade’s collection, with looks evolved with Mua: Seevon Chau and model Danni Wang on set.Screen shot 2013-02-13 at 7.24.16 PM

Her unique approach to East/West cultural fusion, and the upcoming celebration of the year of the snake inspired our whole team.: The B&W “Snake” photos were together as a collaboration with Obscure Object Films, which used the photos as a part of their Fashion film as well.
