Inspired by Gloria Killian The Prisoner is our call for freedom and a reminder to celebrate the unchained lives that we will soon (hopefully!) have back. One part inspired by pandemic induced lockdowns, one part inspired by the courageous Gloria Killian. This resilient woman was cruelly framed for murder, robbery & conspiracy and served almost 20 years in Prison after being sentenced to 32 years to life. Gloria spent everyday in the library acting as a jailhouse attorney for her fellow inmates, despite her own pleas being rejected. After new evidence surfaced that finally proved her innocence, Gloria was freed in 2002. The Prisoner is a part of the Moody Muse Collection by Lauren Dickenson Clarke. Embracing a stylish emoji twist, the series was created to celebrate the enigmatic personas of famous Muses throughout art history; elusive & provocative women who have inspired and motivated the creative process. Dusky, Musky & infused with Justice: Old beaten books fill prison library shelves, entwining notes of antique pages and aged leather binding. Hints of amber & saffron rest upon a base of dry cedar, resins, musks & incense to complete the story of justice, discovery & contemplation. All of our fragrance oils have been added at the highest possible dose to ensure an enhanced scent throw & elevated fragrance experience.
