The avant-garde UK design duo behind Boudicca has come up with a wild new perfume called Wode that “spray paints ” warm notes of juniper, berry, cardamon, nutmeg absolute, clary sage, coriander seed, and angelica root in a mist of bright cobalt blue which eventually fades within minutes from your skin and clothes, only leaving the scent behind.
Wode, the revolutionary fragrance from Boudicca, pays homage to the myth surrounding Queen Boudicca, aka Boadicea. Legend has it that she and her tribe wore a cobalt blue war “paint” on their skin that gave them a ferocious and mythical look when engaging in battle. When finally defeated by the Romans, Queen Boudicca killed herself by swallowing hemlock, an extract of which is included in Wode.
Wode is packaged in a classic spray paint can. Wrapped around the can is an engraved steel label tied with black braided ribbon tipped in metal; a detail synonymous with the BOUDICCA team’s highly refined finishing details on their garments.
