diptyque: Eau des Sens

Thursday, March 17, 2016

It is disconcerting. Some people will perceive the scent in terms of colours. Others will hear whispering voices, taste ambrosia or feel as if they are nestling their noses into soft skin. Presenting Eau des Sens! And its sensational octave of scents. Such a magnificent illusion.

The idea is to take a different view of fragrance, a kind of philosophy of softness - the body’s softness, a softness of skin so sensitive that the sensuous and spiritual realms intermingle around this fresh, full source.

Eau des Sens owes its lively memory to the original way that it is composed. Each citrus fragrance is taken from the corresponding fruit’s leaves, flowers and peel to capture its vital energy as a whole. Neroli is not separated from its branch, and it provides extra sparkle and life. And in its zesty orange gleam, a floral scent is always present.

But Eau des Sens is a diptyque adventure, as soon as you think you understand it and possess its secrets, it changes directions and reveals disconcerting woody and spicy facets. Eau des Sens is well-rounded, harmonious and “blue like an orange” on a green bough in the sunshine of the South of France. Eau des Sens deepens with the breath inhaling its woody notes freshened by ginger. It could be criticized for lacking in common sense, because its structure is such a prodigious achievement of balance. Perhaps it is not very sentimental, either, but rather sensitive and sensuous.

For a diptyque fragrance named Eau des Sens this question is a twofold contradiction. In any case, Eau des Sens can easily be forgiven for its shortcomings because it smells good. Very good. A delight for the senses. Including the sense of humour. Eau des Sens is like music that you breathe in through the skin. A vital vibration in an accord of orange blossom, bitter orange, juniper berries, angelica and patchouli.
