Introducing Contradictions In Ilk - Niche Story

Introducing Contradictions In Ilk


This collection of eight gender-free perfumes are comprised of four paired, but contradictory scent stories, that work beautifully alone and enhance when layered – to surprising effect.

Each perfume in the collection is intended to reflect the many nuances of human nature, with layering allowing the wearer to play up or down different facets of the scent depending on their mood, environment, and caprice. Allowing the wearer a third or even fourth scent, depending on which way around they layer.

The concept of contradictory and layerable perfumes is based on Contradictions In Ilk’s belief that it’s the contradictions in our character that truly make us who we are. The emotions or personality traits that inspire the rich stories and defining scents behind each perfume should spark a “that’s essentially me in a bottle” moment.

Every interaction the wearer has with Contradictions In Ilk perfumes should ring true with what the brand believes in: quality, conscious consumerism, confidence, individual character, and the collaboration between a brand and the wearer – emphasizing their own story but never overshadowing it.
