Blue, the color of creativity

Dior, as part of the promotion of its new ready-to-wear collection, has published a video by Professor Michel Pastoureau, a renowned symbolist, who talks about the meaning of the color blue through the ages.

I actually red the book “Blue” a few years ago. I remember I enjoyed very much the experience. It was fantastic to realise how the religion and society have influenced the perception of the colour from “hate” to “love”.

"[During Roman times], blue eyes were almost a physical disgrace. It was the sign of little virtue for women, while it was considered as effeminate, barbaric or ridiculous for men."*

I love colours. Well, it might seem strange since I have played with a very narrow chromatic palette in my pictures for quite a few years now. But I get to learn about them and their symbolism.

I discovered the book « L’Etonnant pouvoir des couleurs »** by Jean-Gabriel Causse, a colour designer. This is where I first red about Feng Shui. I did not know anything about the Chinese philosophy. I investigated further and literally fell in love with the philosophy based on observation. It is now part of my daily life.

Apart from the virtue of blue in Feng Shui, the colour has been qualified as the colour of creativity by scientific studies. Many artists have been inspired by the colour.

Sublime tout simplement

J’adore bien au dessus des grandes marques. Je suis prêt à le commercialiser dans mes boutiques 😅

Belle rencontre !

Merci pour notre bel échange ce matin à Nyons ! La beauté de vos photos, la fragrance subtile d'Impermanence et tout d'abord le nom de ce parfum m'ont attirée vers vous et je suis ravie de notre rencontre. J'espère que l'orage de l'après midi n'a pas abîmé votre très joli stand et que les visiteurs ont été nombreux. Bienvenue à Nyons !

Unique invitation au voyage

Pour ma part j’ai totalement craqué pour Underworld
Sa créatrice est une artiste à part entière et d’une grande gentillesse qui se reflète à travers la délicatesse de ses parfums...
Je recommande BRAVO

Excellentes compositions ! je l'ai aimé

One of a kind

I immediately fell in love with Impermanence, a scent I've been looking for quite a long time, without even knowing it. It's lighthearted, but stays all day. It makes me breathe deeper and feel stronger. It's ginger note is tender, but present. Usually I don't like ginger in scents, only in food. ;o) But here it's different, quite mysterious to me. The whole scent is in a way mysterious and clear at the same time. Love it!
