BLOOD SWEAT TEARS
BLOOD SWEAT TEARS
BLOOD SWEAT TEARS ◯
Composition of addictive essences.
Flowing pulsating, mutating with the essences that keep us keeping on: teas, tobacco, jasmine, ancient fruit. Subtle top notes open up to a deep and expressive woody base. Pungent, sweet, hypnotic: a portrait of perseverance. Inspired by the gritty soulfulness of the Blues & Yves Klein’s performances. Motions of roundness, infinite circles. Barres, empty theaters, the salinity of sweat. Blues, grays, clouds, creeks.
“Gutta cavat lapidem - Dripping water hollows stone”- Ovid
