  1. Gris Clair: the shades of grey

    The color grey. Is it a perfect balance in the world of colors when none of them is dominating and all of them are the same? Or is it a result of eternal contest between the light and the darkness who reached their compromise in grey? Is it a color at all? Or just a shade? Or a shadow?

    Gris Clair by Serge Lutens could be the answer to those questions. Smelling it reveals a beautiful picture in grey to my mind. I see seashore on a grey day with taupe coloured sand, steel blue water, ...

    Eau d'Hadrien

    A soothing burst of lemon
    from the sparkling island of Cyprus.

    The fragrant cypress trees possess the lemon scent

    under the great trees.

    Hot sand between my toes,
    a fresh dip in the sea
    and a picnic lunch with dry red wine.

    Pierre Balmain-
    Miss Balmain

    Hot, rushing leather and galbanum;
    a swirl of satin and she's gone.
    Who was that stunning blond over there by the fire?

    The heart pounds as the furs are too warm.

    the amusing conversation.

    A leather-floral-woody chypre with green top notes, ...
