Beautifully crafted and conceptualized I must say. NY artist Anicka Yi and architect Maggie Peng came together to produce this one of a kind fragrance inspired by Fusako Shigenobu. If you don’t know, Fusako was the former leader of the Japanese Red Army, who was believed to be in exile in Lebanon for many years after orchestrating some of the group’s most political statements. For the main theme of the fragrance, they chose to go with cedar wood as it is highly regarded in Lebanon as a national emblem. The packaging as well was made of raw cedar wood and each bottle is uniquely hand-cut by both Yi & Peng in architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within. Too beautiful to use… Hit the jump for more looks of the Shigenobu Twilight.
