Jean-Claude Ellena’s beautiful creation provides that comforting, soft, sweet glow of warmth for winter days. The chill of winter is suggested by the austere top notes of bergamot and angelica; then memories of summer flood back, recalled by fragrant, powdery iris, hawthorn and jasmine. Finally, an intoxicating richness of carnation, caramel, honey heliotrope and musk unfolds like a length of glowing scented velvet.
His mission was to bring inspiration back to the ‘hidden heart’ of perfumery: commissioning the perfumers to move away from the constraints and demands of today’s mass market and encouraging them to create scents without restriction, from the outer limits of their imagination.
These highly unusual and imaginative fragrances herald a new purity and style in the world of fragrance; rare and precious ingredients are combined in stunning collectors pieces, each one a triumph of the perfumer’s art.
