"Emotions, perceptions, images, negativity, positivity – everything what is put down inside us in layers. Layer by layer, piece by piece, in different colours and hues. These layers are what shape us, create us and our soul. There is nothing so deep inside us as everything that we have put there by ourselves. Mon âme / My soul."
You could consider 1907's Mon âme to be a love letter written to one of perfumery's most prized ingredients: the iris. Slightly dry, yet characterfully rich-and-rooty, the ohhhhh so opulent iris has long been an object of olfactory desire; and it's signature is the front and the centre of Mon âme. On skin the scratchier, more wooded edges that are a little too apparent on paper seem to dissipate after a short time leaving a gloriously refined, glossy iris accord that smells like its levitating at a different register, hovering somewhere above the bubblegum tinged, linalool heavy rose that supports it.
