ABOUT THE INSPIRATION
The fragrance ENLIGHTENMENT is inspired by photographs I took in La Foux d'Allos, a ski resort in the French Alps. Invited to present my combined practice of photography and perfumery, I prolonged my stay in the heart of the white-immaculate mountains to draw on its strength to keep going on the winding way to awakening.
After these few weeks, I translated into scent the need to gather myself so that to better embrace my way.
⭐This fragrance invites you to desert abysses and to slowly awaken to the vertigo of love.
I will start by saying that I will set this bottle aside until late autumn as to my thinking this is very much a cold weather scent. Gone are any hints of sweetness and flowers, what remains is clean and crisp, this is very much an outdoor scent. No single component rises above the other, nor is this overpowering in any sense. I can imagine wearing this outdoors in the cold with a sweater on, or indoors curled up near a fire.
