They promised to bury in darkness the tree of good and evil, to banish tyrannical honesties so that we might bring hither our very pure love. It began with a certain disgust and it ends, – unable to immediately grasp this eternity – it ends in a riot of perfumes. - Arthur Rimbaud, Matinée d’ivresse
RIOT OF PERFUME is a limited-edition arts and culture magazine based in NYC that features contemporary fashion, criticism, art, music, creative writing, and photography. The title is taken from a bad translation of the poem Matinée d’ivresse by the symbolist poet Arthur Rimbaud.
Riot of Perfume is currently accepting applications for editorial interns/assistants for Summer 2013. Previous editorial experience is preferred. Please email a cover letter, resume, and any samples of copy editing, transcriptions, or other relevant texts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
