Metamorphosis Cycle (parfum)
"I was looking for a single body, all I wanted was a sense of balance around me and the perennial delicacy of this fragrance, of its Spirito. None of the notes that I chose sought to dominate the other.
I wanted a timeless fragrance, one in which gaze became lost in the olfactory memory of this journey to a place that I had never seen. A place that only Spirits could reach.
I had a strong desire to get away, to escape for a spring or summer day, but I couldn’t and so I imagined a big field blooming with flowers. I wanted to recreate a place I had never seen. I was joined by the poetry of Emily Dickinson, by her words and her images. I saw that place. It felt nearby, like it was mine.
“In a never-before-seen place,
past the place I could only imagine.
Now I am there, among fragrances never mentioned aloud,
but felt in the spirit, where I have never been;
nor you, perhaps; only the souls.
I was there though, smelling the fragrances,
seeing the edges of the forest.”
