Shigenobu Twilight is a limited edition handcrafted scent by NY artist Anicka Yi and architect Maggie Peng.
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 hand-distilled fragrance is made of raw cedar wood, each one uniquely hand-cut in architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within.
The fragrance is named after Fusako Shigenobu, former leader of the Japanese Red Army, who was believed to be living in exile in Lebanon for many years, hence the choice of cedar wood as a central theme of this fragrance’s narrative, cedar being highly regarded in Lebanon as a national emblem.
Available in a limited edition from Ooga Booga.
