Dark corners of a room seem to creep and reach out as the midnight clouds steal the last remaining shards of moonlight. Memories of smoky dreams are lost within your mind. Ruminating over the scent of mystery and nightfall, the fire you went through drifts along the air, the spices of heartache linger on the skin. Assured, you know morning will come, the darkness will subside, and the theory that everything remains dreadful will be smashed and broken.
“This feeling of an ancient city, but with a freshness, a modernity. An old luxury and a new confidence. Sometimes clichés are in the popular imagination for all the right reasons. This is the meeting of two continents and two cultures. Coffee. Creaminess. Leather. Suede. Spices. Incense. Waking up in the Moda, crossing the Bosphorus, and a balmy night in Karaköy.”
An ambery, woody, spicy fragrance. A fresh aromatic head, with notes of bergamot, cardamom, red thyme. A woody, aromatic heart, with lavender absolute, Egyptian geranium essence, patchouli heart and sweet myrrh (opoponax) essence. And basenotes of sandalwood, vanilla, tonka bean, amber and musks.
“It’s addictive, big, small, soaring, down to earth, and done with a wicked sense of humour. East end boys and west end girls. Second-hand leather jackets. Creative, new, old, beautiful, ugly, rich, poor. All rubbing along. It’s a wet spring. Roses from Columbia Rd. Georgian architecture. A hint of dustiness. An earthy lush wetness you can almost taste.”
It’s a floral leather fragrance. With a watery green head, of cucumber and violet leaves. A floral heart, with Rose de Mai Absolute, rose oil and orris root. And basenotes of leather, sandalwood, patchouli, and cedarwood.
A scent inspired by Kamakura, Japan – Kamakura is the birthplace of the samurai culture and was Japan’s capital during the Shogunate period from 1192 to 1333. Today Kamakura is popular for its cultural tourism and its beaches. A place where you could spot a surfer walking through the garden of a temple, or you may come across a Jesuit priest sitting in Zen meditation at one of the temples. Sacred and profane share the same intriguing feelings.
NORDIC NOIR is a scented tribute to the artistic mystery and beauty of the dark and cold season of the north. The art that grows under the great dark blue skies and the harsch conditions that influence the way we work. The Nordic Noir olfactive pyramid takes it inspiration from hope, longing and light in a sophisticated composition with a woody base of cedar and sandalwood, a heart of orris, mint and fresh gingerroots and it all begins with a captivating top of cardamom and rosemary.
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.”
The essence of a love full of contrasts, a fragrance that is all about passionate temptations. The heart of the rose introduces a sensual atmosphere where Sambac plays with Myrrh, Magnolia, Lebanese Cedarwood and Bourbon Vanilla.
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.
The sense of infinite eternal love, engagement, marriage, diamonds are forever, the –white– bouquet, the prince on the –white- horse, until death do us part… The love every woman wishes for. It’s an idealized love, it somewhere, sometime, will carry and embrace the little dark horse. It is romantic love, may it be true.
This woman in love is very attractive as we all wish to been seen with her eyes and embraced by her love and dedication. However she is not yours as she belongs to him. We wish to be her and we wish to be him.
