For their collaborative fragrance Scandalwood, world-famous burlesque performer Dita Von Teese lured Heretic in a new direction. Since naturally-occurring musk notes can only be achieved with animal-derived ingredients and they are a cruelty-free brand, they chose to rely on certain synthetic notes to create the seductive musk accord they desired.

They combined it with naturally-derived materials and Scandalwood was born. Scandalwood dives deep into velvety sandalwood with leather-wrapped roses and sparks of coriander, the kind of fragrance that titillates, teases and beguiles... Just like Ms. Von Teese herself.

Notes: coriander, bois de rose, atlas cedar, Bulgarian rose, ylang ylang absolute, sandalwood, orris butter, labdanum, myrrh

We do not accept returns of perfumes, simply because perfumes can't be resold once they've been opened and used. We encourage you to order samples before purchasing full bottles of perfume. And here's the good news — with every sample purchased, we'll send you a coupon code that allows you to redeem the cost of the sample and sample shipping if you buy a full bottle of the fragrance you tried (in other words, you get $10 off).

Please contact if you have a question or issue related to your order or shipping.

Sample Orders

Samples are designed to help you evaluate scents you might want to later purchase as a full bottle. You may order one sample per fragrance, up to 15 total in a single order. Samples are non-refundable.

For sample orders, please check your packing slip for a special code that will allow you to redeem the price of samples and sample shipping when purchase full bottles of the scents you sample ($10 off full bottles).

Complimentary Samples

We provide complimentary samples with $75+ full bottle purchases. You may request up to 3 samples with any qualifying order. Please use the Order Note section on the Shopping Cart overlay to let us know which complimentary samples you would like. We'll try to provide the scents you've requested, but substitutions may occur if items are out of stock.

Signature scent!

Scandalwood has become my signature scent. I receive many compliments when I wear it.
It was sold out directly from Heretic and from the other beauty store I usually purchase from. It was a lovely surprise to also receive a perfume sample along with my purchase from Ministry of Scent. Will definitely try more perfumes from MoS!

Not natural

Many of this brands’ perfumes are only part natural, containing some synthetics, like this one. It’s misleading to put it in the all natural category. Its also pretty boring.


Got a really strange pickle juice / astringent note out of this one, only started smelling like a sandalwood floral 30 minutes after drydown
