Missive15 - Eau de Parfum 1.7oz
Exotic, complex notes that merge together into a beautiful oriental woody abstraction.
"Nothing makes the heart skip a beat more intensely than finding a long forgotten letter from a loved one, maybe inside the pages of a book, maybe in the bottom of a rarely opened drawer. Our reading stops at every word and our eyes become teary. We revive not only the moment those lines describe, we live again that same instant when we read the letter for the first time. Just like our memory gets a bolt because of a scent, written words etch themselves in our souls and make us feel stronger, more loved, more alive."
Inspired by how letters change our world and the lost tradition of letter writing, I was inspired to create a scent that would capture the essence of a hand written love letter and this fading tradition by encapsulating a letter in a single bottle.
In collaboration with master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Missive15 -- the essence of a love letter was created.
