Strychnine - RESURRECTION Pre-Order
Strychnine is a popular poison choice in literature and murder mysteries, probably due in part to the very noticeable and dramatic symptoms an acute exposure can cause -- these include severe muscle spasms and convulsions which eventually lead to death by asphyxiation. It is believed that Alexander the Great may have been poisoned by strychnine in 323 BC, though the chemical compound itself was not characterized until 1818. Despite its well-known toxicity throughout history it actually gained popularity as a recreational stimulant or an athletic performance enhancer during the late 1800s -- similar to caffeine. It also appears to have seen some use as an experimental treatment for depression and other mental illnesses. Yikes.

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).
