The freedom of cycling past the former spice warehouses of the Warmoesstraat to a canalside apartment on Prinsengracht on the elegant south side of the city. Wind in your hair.
Now we’re inside. It’s getting dark. It’s gezellig. That quintessential ingredient of good Amsterdam living — it’s cosy. Warm. Flowers in the window. Cake and feeling indulged. Beautifully made wooden furniture. Dark hues on the walls.
A genre-defying floral, spicy, woody, ambery fragrance. The conceptual imagining of a black tulip.A spicy aromatic head of elemi, schinus molle CO2 extract, Szechuan pepper and saffron. The floral heart contains tulip and rose. And a base of cedarwood, musks, sandalwood and amber.
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.
