The Feeling — Fresh flowers blown over the sewers from a cemetry, a cool breeze carrying the scent of the deceased, and stolen petals from headstones. A beast seeking beauty and an erection summoned by the orients. Sexual rituals and offerings of incense.
The Palette — Profarnesal (Green Fougere), Artemisia, Scentenal (Swamp Water), Undecavertol (Violet) Saffron, Guaiacwood, Patchouli, Oud, Cedarwood.
»The fragrance I developed was in response to the character and atmosphere of the cemetery scene. A contrast between light and darkness, above and below, flower and earthy, beauty and ugliness. It opens up with a melancholic green, floral, muddy cemetery - fresh tonality and transitions into a space of animality and sensuality with the orientalism incarnated in the woman he discovers.« — Lucas Sieuzac
