Max 16 Les Prestigieuses Collection
Encre de Chine: Chinese ink has long been a prestigious and unique material, made more desirable by the mystery that surrounds its ancestral recipe. Admired by artists and philosophers, it is a material often attributed to calligraphy, as its intense black marks its surface permanently. Heavily woody, the Encre de Chine scent combines sandalwood and vetiver into what resembles hints of smoke. It is a scent that evokes scenes of wild landscapes full of mystery, defined by tradition.
Pierre de Lune: The moonstone is known for its mesmerizing interaction with light. For centuries, many thought it showcased different phases of the lunar cycle. In India, the moonstone is seen as the “stone of dreams” bringing incredible visions to those who possess it. Through subtle associations of mint and verbena, Pierre de Lune’s floral scent is a portal into a peaceful and dreamlike world.
Cuir de Russie: According to legend, Russian leather first appeared at the time of the tsars. Having galloped through the endless steppes of Russia, a Cossack warrior gathered around a campfire at nightfall with his fellow riders. He then came up with the idea of rubbing his leather boots with birch bark to make them waterproof. This diffused an extraordinary smell that immediately enchanted all of the riders. An exceptional fragrance was immediately released into the air, as the riders all fell hopelessly in love with its incredible scent. A blend of vetiver and moss uplifted by a hint of musk, the Cuir de Russie scent conjures up the memory of a comforting wood fire.
