I’m experimenting with writing about each perfume, here is a re-write of the brief for Figure 1: Noir. The reference to the cemetery is a fantastical point of view from when Greg and I were in Prague is back in August 2003. Really, the entire paragraph is written in a magical realism type style.
Figure 1: Noir contains notes of the wet mossy earth found in an ancient cemetery in Prague where the bones of alchemists lay restless and waiting. Leaves, roots and woods thickly braided with enchantments invoked amongst creatures roaming wild. Lush, mouth watering fruits picked just before ripening when a hint of the sour is a perfect contrast to the impending, yet hidden sweetness of human skin.
