"I was working with a lovely chap called Max, and when he found that I made perfumes he went all strange and just whispered, “Habit Rouge! Drakar Noir!” It turns out that he was nuts about scents that are loaded with character. So one day Max was joking about not helping me with my computer software and I said “You’re evil, Max,” and he decided it was a perfect name for a fragrance. I made it for him for Christmas."
The current version is Evil Max 2, Return to the Bus Depot; we reformulated it to comply with 2013 regulations and make it a little more wearable. All the same the crazy combination of dark cherry, leather, coffee, oakmoss and pepper is a one off.
