English singer-songwriter, FKA twigs, teamed up with the founder of fragrance brand House of Matriarchy, Christi Meshell, to launch Magdalene.
The five-year formulation process created Magdalene which offers five key holistic essences of rose, spikenard, balsam, wood and incense. Magdalene is vegan, halal, gluten and cruelty-free.
According to the fragrance's landing page, FKA twigs was captivated by the historical portrayal of perfume maker Mary Magdalene. Wanting to rewrite the Magdalene narrative through the lens of patriarchal oppression and sexual liberation through music and creativity, the scent is described as "the embodiment of the virgin and the whore."
