Living The Fantasy

Sapphics in the City is inspired by facets of founder Ingrid’s identity, lesbian pulp fiction and her favorite cocktail, the Clover Club. The fragrance explores what being femme feels like and embodies a reclamation of femininity that isn’t measured by heteronormative standards.

Similar to the way she adorns her body, Ingrid chose every note in this scent intentionally. Peonies represent Ingrid’s past, often fraught relationship with femininity. Muddled raspberries, juniper and lemon give nod to the Clover Club – a drink once reserved for wealthy white men, that fell out of fashion when it was perceived as being feminine. Thai rose apple (ชมพู่ or "chompoo") incorporates her Southeast Asian heritage and represents the entwined nature of culture and identity. Crinkled book pages pay homage to mid-century lesbian pulp fiction, which was often written off as salacious fluff, but became a lifeline for millions of queer women. Finally, spicy chili peppers add an unexpected heat while illustrating the edges within femininity.

SITC captures the tension of simultaneously being at odds and completely in love with who you are – something Ingrid has felt all her life. Together, these notes come together to create a scent that is glamorous, complex, provocative and multifaceted. It is never just one thing. In fact, when you look at these notes individually, they seem like they shouldn’t go together, but somehow, they just work.

Imagine: A sapphic, intentionally self adorned, the strange delight of a Clover Club, worn pages of pulp fiction, a tingle on her lips, she's not here to please you, because she'd rather please herself.
