Scent can be an intense shot of nostalgia, of richness and fragmented memories that sits in the fabric of your soul , only ever awoken with something like a fragrance flashing you back to a time and space; Bleu Intense by Fragrance Du Bois did that for me. For this piece I’ve looked at the concept of those fragments; and the idea of a visual scrap book of memories, how they are preserved in our heads and hearts and how something like fragrance can pull them back to the surface our minds eye. Whether that’s good or bad , old or new, it’s the sense of nostalgia we can all be triggered by at times. – GG Stokes
Oud Bleu Intense with its notes of sea breeze and mountain air is an intensely vital fragrance. Rich complex notes of woods and spices make this fragrance a dreamy spiritual experience for the senses.
A unique spicy harmony of hand-picked cardamom, nutmeg and mandarin form the top notes. The infusion of intoxicating frankincense, myrrh essence and warm amber create the heart note. The nuances of exotic Oud then rise, complementing a rich long-lasting base of onycha and sweet myrrh. Perfumer – Guillaume Flavigny
