EILISH NO. 2 BY BILLIE EILISH EDP
Introducing Eilish No. 2, the dark, alluring new fragrance created by Billie Eilish. A more raw and
striking exploration of Billie’s favourite fragrance notes, Eilish No. 2 conveys a smooth, alluring
aroma which opens with the freshness of Italian bergamot and apple blossom. It flows into a
woody, earthy spiciness of papyrus and black pepper with a contrast of wild wet poppy flowers.
Base notes of woody palo santo and ebony that are expertly wrapped in a metallic, nuanced
veil of skin musk, complete the experience.
The design of the bottle, as the original, is inspired by Billie’s favourite parts of the body: the decolletage,
with this rendition articulated in a dark, metallic grey slate. The fragrance
is vegan and cruelty free.
