Lady Disdain


Fresh carnation petals, spiced vanilla, red velvet musk, soft leather, Moroccan rose, ylang ylang, pink peppercorn. Part of the Fall Favourites Collection.

A Poesie cult favourite, Lady Disdain often gets recommended for when you want to feel powerful and ready to take on the world (a good one to have in your arsenal of scents, we think). We’ve also seen it described as sexy badass, queer pirate, a floral for the floral averse, and “soothing and rebellious at the same time.” You have to at least try this, right?

A very modern, almost sheer carnation floats over spiced vanilla and a red velvet musk made up of animalic musks with a hint of chocolate, and sweet myrrh. Melding into these is spicy Moroccan rose, narcotic ylang-ylang, and a warm blend of leather and labdanum accented by a delicate dose of pink peppercorn. The overall effect is a warm, spicy floral evocative of vintage scents but made fresh, approachable, and very wearable.
