Tomáš Ric has a background in vogue that interprets into an aesthetic sensibility that infuses many areas of the model – ranging from the distinctive fringe of the visuals to the glossy luxurious packaging to the olfactive profiles that veer away from mainstream traits.

The title evokes a colour palette – pigmentum in Latin means colour, and pigmentarium is a Latin time period that designated the place the place scented ointments and colours had been bought. The model takes its inspiration from Czech historical past and tradition, which gave us  world-renowned names, superb structure, and avant-garde actions, and verbalizes it to a manifesto the place ethics and aesthetics meet:

​Pigmentarium Erotikon, a sensually mysterious fragrance telling a narrative of affection and lust, has been impressed by the silent movie of the identical title, directed by Gustav Machatý. Launched in  1929, and starring lovely Ita Rina because the lead actress, it’s a film that explores themes of sexuality and want, and it was one of many earliest movies to depict a lady’s pleasure, a theme thought-about taboo in the course of the period when Erotikon was launched.  It may very well be stated that that is the primary depiction of lovemaking, seen from the feminine viewpoint, the place a lady is not a passive actor that has intercourse ”occur to her” however feels want, takes initiative, and enjoys it.

I liked the very meta and scrumptious connection to the perfume, as within the film, Erotikon is the title of the fragrance Georg provides to Andrea after they first met (as an easter egg to the film aficionados, see the frames here, from 10:38). The film makes use of splendid cinematography, due to Vaclav Vich’s groundbreaking digicam work, with dynamic and complex scenes, switches perspective from hers/his aspect, with extensive loops which can be paying homage to a merry-go-round, successions of blur and focus to surrounding objects that turn out to be full of symbolism, the photographs on the wall, the gramophone, the dizzying tempo of the music. And the climax scene – depicted as two drops of water that soften into one – is a timeless story of ever-lasting lust.

Concord juxtaposed with contradictions, a fascinating stability between insufferable rigidity and candy ease, the fun invoked by the forbidden. The stark but eclectic minimalism of elite interiors, the clear traces of Cubism, and the pioneering spirit of the avant-garde – all these parts served as inspiration not just for the fragrance’s designers but additionally for these weaving the magic of its visible marketing campaign. Glossy eye sweet, the visuals are a monochrome exploration of affection, lust, and celebration of femininity. The artist who captured every part is the winner of the Czech Grand Design 2018 competitors Hana Knížová. There’s a splash of colour – bordeaux –  subtle, cool, provocative, and I can’t consider a greater colour to signify sensuality.  There’s additionally a Spotify playlist obtainable, that provides us one other sensorial side to Erotikon, teasing us even additional, earlier than we get to odor the fragrance.

The EROTIKON fragrance tells a narrative of affection and want and brings again recollections of loves and sins lengthy gone. I attempted imagining what it could be wish to have a fragrance with the help of which one might seduce anyone the wearer needs. What wouldn’t it odor like? How wouldn’t it work?” Regardless of the visible being primarily about the fantastic thing about girls, EROTIKON is meant for everyone who falls for it. I’m satisfied {that a} fragrance chooses its wearer, not the opposite manner round. Furthermore, ardour just isn’t restricted by intercourse or age,”  provides the creator of the scent,  perfumer Jakub Hiermann

The heady, intoxicating attract of Erotikon unfurls very like a silent language of seduction. The scent opens with tantalizing prime notes, a spicy mix of ginger and pink pepper – sharp, vigorous, adrenalized, just like the sense of risk that creates an explosive power change between two lovers assembly for the primary time. A pressure discipline that raises pulses, with the flutter of the butterflies that reverbs from one soul cage into the opposite, an overture of want, unraveling to its crescendo. The scent nearly crackles on the pores and skin, like liquid static that raises the hairs on the again of your neck, a scrumptious spiky roughness that’s quickly adopted by sheer indulgence.  Melting on prime of the spices we now have the sinfully candy forbidden fruit of affection, introduced on by the velvety richness of chocolate notes – delicious, high-brow, decadent. Within the coronary heart notes we now have the tenderness that follows the tempest of want, with vanilla and tonka, voluptuous and creamy, flowing in languid curves. It conjures up photographs of naked pores and skin warmed by contact, the sensual abandon and craving, within the moments that bend time and make it circulate, gradual like honey, from one second to the opposite. After many hours, we now have the after-glow the passionate encounter, with whispers of amber, musk, and the earthiness of patchouli making for a heat and intimate expertise.

Notes: chocolate, ginger, pink pepper, vanilla, tonka beans, amber, musk, patchouli, sandalwood
