About the product:
A soothing whisper.
A warm cloud of iris, hawthorn and heliotrope pervades a transparent sea of bergamot and hedione to make a paradoxical “eau chaude”; a subtle, intimate expression of personal comfort.
A reconciliation of warmth and transparency.
Base: Iris, hawthorn, heliotrope
About the perfumer:
Born into a family of perfumers from Grasse, Jean-Claude Ellena was introduced to the art of developing fragrances as a teenager. Self-taught, he defines his creations as a "poetry of memory." Everyday smells, wax floors, clean sheets, skin, an old sweater—are his greatest inspiration. Jean Claude Ellena never raises his voice, although he is heard loud and clear. His signature is simple, minimalist and modern. His style is often compared to watercolors or chamber music.
