Here we are in front of a concept of perfumery. Perhaps many people do not understand what I mean to say, but surely if the reader had the ability to use his nose as his ears he would understand this mystery.
There is a perfume, Eau Dynamisante (1987), whose Nose has created without any market scheme, and this one is a great work of Jacques Courtin.
Currently I can consider this scent more creative than 90% of Niche fragrances.
This fragrance introduces a new concept of unisex elegance! Magnificent, considering when it was launched, a link between past and future.
If this perfume were music it would play as the Elegy of Rachmaninov!
Using the same elegance accord after 7 years we have another masterpiece, L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme (1994) whose Nose, Jacques Cavallier, created with Japanese citron and mandarin playing with geranium and vetiver.
There are three ingredients really interesting, the ones which give originality to this perfume: cinnamon, verbena and sandalwood!
The character of this fragrance is certainly less pompous than the Clarins one, abandoning all connections with the past giving up the power of flowers.
If this fragrance were music would be a topic of Turandot by Giacomo Puccini shooting from Elegy of Rachmaninov.
Now we have a perfume by Hermes, ten years later! In this one we have only elegance without originality,Terre d'Hermès (2006). Here Jean-Claude Ellena used grapefruit and orange playing with geranium and vetiver.
There are three ingredients really interesting which trivialize this perfume: pepper, patchouli and benzoin.
If this perfume were music? It would be a child who is learning to play!
