My revenge. At the beginning of my training, the first classic accord I had to learn and replicate, without much luck, was the legendary floral tuberose with jasmine and orange blossom. I've now been able to regain that satisfying experience and to interpret the myth, reformulate the accord fragrance with my learned language.
A shadow moves on the ground, comes to life sheltered from the sun and captures the essence of the different olfactory messages that plants give off growing on it with their flowers, fruits, leaves, wood, mosses, resins, roots, to combine like a true alchemist and develop its own perfume.
A vintage fragrance paying homage to oriental perfumes from the beginning of the 20th century, with which I grew up and from which I learned so much at Myrurgia. Interpreted with traditional ambergris and vanilla in contemporary proportions and mixed with other state-of-the-art ingredients.
To celebrate my fiftieth birthday and make it unforgettable for my guests, I recreated a courtyard of orange trees in blossom and imagined a light perfume with light and passion, inspired by the verses that the Andalusian poet Antonio Machado penned about an orange tree in one of his poems. My guests liked it so much that it ended up being the soul that gave life to my signature project.
My alter ego.
My fetish. Black leather, absolute presence, timeless reference, requires a strong personality to show its power. Fusion of traditional European equestrian culture with that of the legendary American motorcycles, with which I also identify. Brave unmistakable fragrance... but the essence of leather does not exist! The accord interprets it.
Olfactory inspiration, resplendent and magic. Bewitching floral filter. Exuberant and voluptuous tuberose and jasmine with exotic Osmanthus. Magic and power dressed in incense and labdanum linked to the the incandescent strength that emanates from cedar wood.
This is my festive tale of a magical celebration of a starry night in Dubai.
I have always felt an irresistible attraction for leather.
A leather accord can be intense and severe, but, when it revolves around tanned suede with cedar and vanilla essence, it becomes velvety soft, golden and very elegant. It’s the other side of leather.
The real rose water was the water used in the distillation of rose petals that, after extracting their essential oil, maintained a pleasant floral smell of fresh petals and was used as personal, cosmetic or ambient perfume. L’eau de rose is my homage, in a liquid Mediterranean key, to the unique essence of roses.
“Fascinated by Dubai! The 4 elements of the nature around me: the powdered land of rose and tonka, spices on the air, smoky fire of oud and frankincense, and finally the fruity vital water. The perfume comes to live in my mind and yells me… do it!”
Pure, sophisticated and very exclusive. Unique elixir of Indian oud, Turkish rose and Somalian frankincense in graceful presence of Spanish saffron and Russian leather. Magic revelation next to Dubai.
