Exploring classic light and dark textures infused with a modern twist by Nathalie Benareau.
This complex, yet playful exploration of light and dark textures brings a modern twist to classic perfumery notes. A rich base of sumptuous dark leather is punctuated by the elegance of night blooming jasmine. Nostalgic notes of sweet cotton candy and herbal mate add a contemporary lightness to the perfume. Hidden notes that emerge as the fragrance dries down surprise you when you think you really know it.

Nathalie Benareau’s perfumery career was closely shaped by her upbringing in the French Alpine countryside. “We would hike every afternoon and I would stop to smell everything. I would smell the moss and the trees and the flowers”, she remembers. “When I went to engineering school, I realized that there was actually an industry for doing just that.”
“Scent is like an alphabet that you can use to create a story, and you can create the story of a person using scent.” I chose to enjoy my creative freedom to tell the story of Odette, my closest friend who has an electrifying personality.
