In 1905, a lovestruck young woman named Mazie Coyle devised a scheme to break her fiancee out of prison that would later become legendary - a hacksaw baked into a wedding cake.

To celebrate love, ingenuity, and the pleasures of nonviolently thumbing one's nose at the system, Ex Idolo presents Love & Crime, a delightfully bright floral gourmand with sass and style to spare. The scent is deceptively simple, a bold, lusciously romantic blend of rich vanilla and white florals, smooth, creamy and mouthwatering. A vibrant note of red mandarin shines in the opening, bestowing a fruity brightness to the richly sugared exterior. We're treated to both indulgent butteriness and, though a surprisingly dark, if subtle, note of cocoa, a hint of the illicit surprise within.

This is a scent meant to charm and delight, and Love & Crime accomplishes that goal as deftly as a perfectly timed prison break.

Ex Idolo
Ex Idolo

Ex Idolo was founded in Mayfair, London in 2013 by Matthew and Tatiana Zhuk. The core concept behind our creations is showcasing rare and precious materials within sympathetic compositions. Their careful sourcing of the world’s finest and rarest aroma materials transforms each bottle into a portal, offering a glimpse into an elusive and secret world. Their style is rather not to be predictable, but to tell each olfactive story individually, and faithfully. Ex Idolo offers a truly artisanal experience that reflects the traditions of classical perfumery; using rare natural materials, hand packaging and small batch quality control.
