Composition of addictive essences. Flowing pulsating, mutating with the essences that keep us keeping on in our daily lives: teas, tobacco, jasmine, ancient fruit. Subtle top notes open up to deep and expressive woody bases. Pungent yet sweet, and hypnotic, it is a portrait of perseverance. Inspired by the gritty soulfulness of the Blues & Yves Klein’s monochromatic blue performances.
