Les ombres fantastiques is a fragrance that brings the hidden shadows of our identities to light. The thing is, when vetiver and iris combine, the very foundations of our personalities are undermined. If the ultra-masculine and the ultra-feminine blend into one, who do I then become? Would I attract my own self, moving beyond the confines of human gender? One instant we’re an unshaven adventurer, the next, a solitary sailor.
" For "Les ombres fantastiques. A.R." I have associated two very universal raw materials: vetiver which is perfect on a man and the iris which is sublime on a woman. The fusion of these notes creates a totally ambivalent and controversial composition: an iris that a man can wear and a vetiver that makes a woman stand out. "
