Nom Parfum

SILLAGE is composed like a photograph with a long exposure time. What to the human eye is a point becomes a line in the eye's lens. Light takes on a physical presence, materializes and becomes permanent. The composition opens with oud notes, but not as a clear image – more like an afterimage. Agarwood usually occupies the entire space, giving the fragrance a dark undertone - in SILLAGE, the oud is a light ribbon along which the other ingredients have been arranged. Imagine a vast open landscape, steep hills closing the horizon, with sharp parallel lines cutting the image into two equal parts. We blurred the lines with subtle notes of saffron and violet, which act as a gentle movement softening the contours, a barely perceptible vibration. SILLAGE is a perfume balanced on the edge of impressions. Its individual elements are fluid, as if in constant motion. It transports us from the dry roughness of resins to the warm embraces of musk and vanilla in all discretion and softness. A wake usually says “I came here”. The fragrance boldly states “I am present,” like an aftertaste, the imprint of a body on the sheets, the emotion left by a touch. The French word sillage refers to the wake left in the water by a sailboat. In the context of perfume, sillage is described as a trail of scent that lingers in the air after a person has left. The train of a dress, the tail of a peacock, an invisible trace. Right behind you.
