Within the labyrinth of life, our reminiscences and experiences interweave, every thread carrying its distinctive scent, like clues on a cosmic treasure map, main us into the center of creation, the birthplace of inspiration, the realm the place artwork and soul converge. As we traverse these landscapes, the air turns into scented with one thing each acquainted and wholly new, like an echo of our previous projecting onto the canvas of our future. One such scented voyage of discovery awaits us within the creations of Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen, the masterminds behind Voyages Imaginaires. The gathering is a veritable epic of the senses, like stepping onto the deck of an olfactory ship that’s about to forged off into the center’s hinterlands, voyaging via the magical topography of emotion, remembrance, and need. Their journey, just like the fabled ship of Theseus, reconstructs our understanding of the self, not via the literal olfactive planks of the vessel, however via the intimate, invisible, and ephemeral traces left by fragrance on our pores and skin and in our reminiscences. Every creation, crafted with an unparalleled ardour for pure supplies, is an intimate invitation to an internal voyage, a method to unlock our unconscious, to stir our dormant needs, and to rediscover the misplaced paradises of our childhood.

It’s well past midday, someplace on a tropical seashore with white sands and clear pale blue waters. At this time the ocean remains to be, no waves dare to hassle the blue infinity stretched into the traces of the horizon. Above, a pale blue sky is the right mirror for the blissful silent eternity, on this place the place clocks have forgotten their motion and time is ensnared and nonetheless. As nonetheless because the our bodies stretched out within the solar, toes buried within the scorching white sand, pores and skin glistening, a deeper shade of bronze. The palm bushes sway within the breeze, so slowly as if the air is fabricated from white honey, slowly pouring between the massive gaps between one second and the subsequent.

The primary minutes into Le Grand Jeu summoned in my thoughts the picture of that paradise – and if paradise was a lush tropical island, this may be its scent – a pale yellow mild the place the nectar of white flowers float in a sunlit milky veil.
Slowly issues grow to be much less angelic and extra human, with the aftertaste of the salt on the sweaty scorching pores and skin and the candy white flesh of coconut that’s so ripe, it nearly looks like tasting an overripe banana. Enjoying within the background, we have now the mix of milky white coconut juice combined with the decadent richness of the vanilla, with tuberose lending its bubblegum-ish yellow mouthwatering aspects to the combo. Nevertheless it by no means feels too “tropical”, neither does it fall into the sticky aftermath of the standard white flower-coconut scents. In Le Grand Jeu, though not listed, I really feel the presence of a mischievous inexperienced, lime-ish freshness that retains the scent alive, light-as-a-feather, and as refreshing as a coconut cocktail, inexperienced umbrella included.
Because the rays of the solar flip to the reddish hue of the evenings, the white flower blossom, turning carnal, voluptuous, all curves, petals so spherical they’re busting out on the seams with powdery candy nectar. The tuberose turns to a heady and opulent scent, combined with gardenia for a creamy, elegant impact that works each for “previous cash” Monte Carlo aesthetics and younger modern white-minimalist-art-gallery associations. Bond Lady, Bond Lady, Bond, James Bond – this sort of easy, relaxed, and confident timeless seduction energy has no gender, nor any age.

Notice from the model: “This one has intercourse enchantment to spare, proudly flaunting its super sensuality. Heads flip in direction of the arousing scent of moist, tanned our bodies, heating within the solar. The total-on charisma of a Bond Lady, or Bond himself. We see ourselves, in lengthy daringly low-cut night costume or tuxedo, leaning over the playing desk, charmed, captivated. A summer time that may final all yr spherical. On the pores and skin… A stunning white, below a blinding solar. Gardenia and tuberose. Coconut milk. Vanilla. Exuberant and fearless. “
Notes: gardenia, tuberose, coconut milk, vanilla
