“When I saw you, all I saw was a swirl of smoke in the streetlight. Elusive. Sinister. Spectacular.”
A brilliantly dark graphic novel, A City On Fire, is the story of two match-makers. Rupert literally fabricates matches in a factory on the waterfront while Frances writes a dating column for the city’s newspaper. Both are recluses who haunt the night’s shadows observing clandestine activities from afar but never partaking. That changes one fortuitous evening when they are both witness to the same high-profile murder and are forced to come together as an unlikely vigilante pair in order to save their own names.
This scent is literally on fire - dark with firewood and spice, evoking both urban landscapes and the great outdoors, with smoke plumes rising into the air. The refined smoke accord makes this an austere and luxurious scent.

Overall, not a bad smell. However, the smell is strong and sticks around. For most perfumes this is great but for this one, I wish the smell settled into something a little softer.
Tried a sample of this. Reminds me of Le Labo Patchouli 24. Starts off with delicious cade & smoke and then dries down into something softer. Not too strong, not too light. Will be buying a bottle soon.
I was hoping this would smell like a bonfire. However instead it smells like exactly what it's called. The smell of burning buildings isn't warm or inviting and instead sneaks like acrid smoke. Stale and dull. Not a fan at all.
A City On Fire
I thought it would have a twist . But it literally smells like burning smoke , like around a bonfire or something . They were honest, but not a smell I would wear , unless I am sitting around a bonfire perhaps.
