Family: Eau de Cologne
A Byzantine mosaic inspires this fragrance. A pair of white doves, a vessel of water; the male alertly looks away, while the female peacefully takes a drink of the water. The moment is tranquil, yet there’s an alertness.
The accords are evocative of the mosaic’s clear colors: lapis, emerald, white, citron, Mediterranean blue and a touch of orange.
This cologne harkens back to primitive scented waters and distillations, before the invention of modern perfumery. And yet it is a totally modern and transparent creation.
The scent should illuminate, clarify and refresh the wearer, but it should be lasting, like a memory. Light florals, warm sun, over a base of clean musk.
It should be offered in a splash bottle, to encourage the sensual act of applying it to your body with your hands.
The music playing is The Books remake of Nick Drake’s Cello Song.
