Take Me To The River captures the sensuality of a relationship that's going nowhere, but is way too much fun to give up just yet. It's inspired by Talking Heads' live 1980 version which you can watch online if you're interested.
We made three accords: irresponsible irresistible temptation - mostly musks - wine and roses, with cognac essential oil, rose absolute, some fruitiness and spices, then one named Chair: the kind of ancient worn leather sofa that smells of tobacco and layers of beeswax polish, a chair that's just about large enough to hold two people who would like to become better acquainted. It has become the fragrance most likely to be blagged off us. Leave your bottle at home when you wear it and make your friends buy their own.

As Take Me To The River is so inspired by music, we've made a playlist to accompany the perfume. Feel free to listen as you wear it for a multi-sensory experience.
Take Me to the River smells like the kind of place that doesn't exist anymore. If Twin Peaks had been filmed in (glorious) Smell-o-Vision, Take Me to the River's dark booze-soaked roses would have been the olfactory landscape of the Bang Bang Bar. There's smoke hanging in the air, and you're sat in a wine stained booth that's seen better days about to fall into a romance that ends before dawn.
