Laudanum - RESURRECTION Pre-Order
Of all the "poisons that silly people used to use as medicines back in the day", laudanum is... well, still technically available by prescription to this very day. It is a tincture of opium and, until around the 1910s, was available over-the-counter in various forms to cure all sorts of ailments from coughs to menstrual cramps to insomnia to digestive upset. Today it is rarely prescribed, though its formulation remains largely the same as what was available over a century ago (10% anhydrous morphine -- i.e. powdered opium -- mixed with ethanol).

Our annual Resurrection pre-order event features the return of your favorite retired, past seasonal, and limited edition fragrances available all at once for a limited time. It offers a second chance to try out a bottle of a past fragrance that you may have missed, or stock up on a favorite that's no longer regularly available.
Resurrection fragrances are available for PRE-ORDER from February 1 - February 28, 2021. Orders for Resurrection fragrances will begin processing in mid-late March. Please remember that these are PRE-ORDERS and are not subject to our estimated processing times for regular orders.
* For Parfums shipping outside the U.S., Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) may be substituted for some or all of the Perfumer's Alcohol. This allows fragrances to be safely and legally shipped overseas without the huge price increase of surface mail. This does not affect the use of the product, although it may appear very slightly thicker than perfumer's alcohol (it is still sprayable, and can be used in the same way as a regular Parfum).
