Liquides Imaginaires invites to dive into mythology through its olfactive designs, conceived as trilogies. “In the ardour of human passions, themselves”, points out Philippe Di Méo.
“With Sancti, Fortis and Tumultu, the Eaux-Delà perfumes stands between light and darkness”. For example, Sancti is a singular interpretation of holy water and blends encense, myrrh, benzoin with an aromatic note of cypress and rosemary. The Eaux Sanguines trio adresses blood through wine and its lithurgic metaphor, with metallic breezes, a sometimes oxidised wild rose but also balmy accents on a woody base. “Regarding the Eaux Arborantes trio, its pays tribute to nature, to trees and their telluric power”.
Finally, Belle Bête, little newcomer within the Eaux de Peau range : a mix of oxymoron and tension, brutality and sophistication, gentleness and bestiality… “A savage and passionate embrace between the beast and his romantic target”. That fantastic experience takes a cold start with a sage-pepper accent that warms up until getting soaked in powerful and wild notes. These baudelarian scents worthy of an enlightened Edgar Allan Poe are to discover in their singular bottle-urn designed by Philippe Di Méo.
Belle Bête – Eau de Peau, 250 euros les 100 ml.
