Shigenobu Twilight

Shigenobu Twilight

Shigenobu Twilight is the first handcrafted scent by NY artist Anicka Yi and architect Maggie Peng. The fragrance is inspired by Fusako Shigenobu, 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. Yi and Peng have chosen cedar wood as a central theme of this fragrance's narrative, as cedar is highly regarded in Lebanon as a national emblem. The scent uses three different kinds of cedar wood as its base note, along with violet leaf and nutty heart notes, and top notes of yuzu, shiso leaf, and black pepper. The packaging for this fragrance is made of raw cedar wood, each bottle uniquely hand-cut by the creators in faceted architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within.
