Love Affair is a luscious plunge into the vortex of passion. The sensual heart of rose bewitches like a grand seductress. Heavy with emotion and secret passions that are intensified by the mossy, woody vetiver. Its perfume evokes strange powers that speaks of the most intimate stories all the while insisting upon the truth.
The concept behind the fragrance originates from the very first ‘S-Perfume’ originally created by master perfumer Alberto Morillas in 1997. The idea of sheer, skin musk was tweaked a few times in the past 17 years by different perfumers to develop a brand new olfactory sensation. Musk S is the ultimate version of this journey. Rich in sensations, catches your attention with a subtle, yet sharp, out of ordinary fragrance.
The name of the fragrance is an acronym for “S-Perfume Extreme.” The idea behind the first S-Perfume fragrance in 1997 was to create a fragrance using the smell of seminal fluid. The idea behind S-ex was to build the fragrance around form rather than substance. In the V magazine, Author Chandler Burr once wrote “a masterful, complex juxtaposition of elements that gives the scent of the genitalia of a freshly shampooed beast.”
Shaded evokes a nocturnal bath in the sea. The salt on your skin, a subtle incense and new-found sensations await a secret lover’s encounter. Lightly caressed in the ocean mist, every feeling is shaded by an intense plume of vetiver and surrounded by the deepest touch of musk and Guaiac wood.
To be honest captures the experience of stumbling upon an ancient church while walking through the woods. The green and woody fragrance follows you inside. Candles burn silently, their lights still flickering. A waft of incense lingers high above the altar as if the congregation has just vanished. There are notes of myrrh, black pepper, cedar wood, patchouli, vetiver and amber.
Wanted is reminiscent of an oriental garden as the mist rolls in. Slightly dishevelled and overgrown, moss clings to stone statues obscured by twisting trees and shrubs. Bursts of exotic scents are elevated by a delicate cloud of steam. There are notes of clove, juniper, nutmeg, leather with a little musk accord in the air.
The sense of pained profound love. Contrasting feelings like pain and pleasure, faith and fear. Sweetness and bitterness, warmth and danger, softness and extreme loneliness. A love similar to a religious experience full of devotion and suffering. Love as an addiction. Sometimes an impossible love, maybe an unrequited love.
This troubled woman in love is very attractive as she displays all her doubts and vulnerability; she wears it on her skin. In her fragility lies devotion and enormous strength. We wish to be him, but we may not wish to be her, her desire however is irresistible.
The sense of veiled love, the love of lovers. A love full of passion, lightness, as it carries no responsibility. It’s the meeting between a mistress, maybe a courtesan, and her gentleman. Love as a gesture. In order to live this folly majestically, one needs elegance and character, secrecy is a value.
This woman lover is very attractive as she is a complete mystery, she is not yours nor do you know to whom she belongs. She’s seems to be untouchable and free. We wish to be her as we wish to be him.
