This magic potion, this instrument of transformation, could only be made by the crushing of armfuls of roses. Roses with thorny stems that yield lavish blossoms, lush petals, outrageous, puffed-up fantasies, trembling with the sweat of impatience and desire. Roses, red with blood, a piercing note leaving the flavor of fire on lips that suck the finger pricked by a thorn. A bleeding rose. A candy rose. A rose that tastes of fresh milk, a talcum powdered baby's bottom, a wealth of sugared kisses. At Etat Libre d'Orange, the Virgin rarely wanders far from the Whore. Perhaps she is one and the same. Warmed by the fire of this woman, the noses have embraced a fanciful vision. They have created for her a perfume of protection, a refuge on the battlefield of love. Defensive yet transparent, Eau de Protection conceals as it reveals. For her, a caress is demanded, while those around her are struck with awe. The noses have extracted that which is most profound in her, the essence of her. They have distilled her honey and squeezed the juice from her heart. In collaboration with Rossy de Palma.
Notes: Rose, Ginger, Geranium, Patchouli, Pepper, Bergamot, Incense, Benzoin, Cacao, Jasmine
