soigne iiuvo

Soigne

IIUVO

Soigné is an elegant little word, used to describe a man of immaculate style and appearance. It recalls a time of opulence, when stars like Miles Davis and Frank Sinatra thrilled with their effortless talent and style. Possessing a swaggering confidence bordering on arrogance, they were the embodiment of unstudied elegance; carelessly seductive and wild. Soigné is a suitably provocative and nostalgic scent, evoking the fire of an artistic sensibility. Spicy top notes of nutmeg and ceylon cinnamon overlay a warm centre featuring cashmere wood and patchouli,built upon a delicate base of sandalwood and white musk. Soigné is a warm, sensual embrace in the arms of someone dangerous.

Notes: Cyclamen, nutmeg, ceylon cinnamon, crystal violet, cashmere wood, patchouli, sandalwood, white musk.

Gilot

IIUVO

Françoise Gilot was just twenty-one when she first met Pablo Picasso in a Parisian café. Yet, not long after, she accompanied the painter to the South of France, to live as his lover and muse. Often depicting her in cool, aquatic tones of blue and green, Picasso referred to Gilot as his Mediterranean inspiration. After ten years and two children, Gilot left Picasso despite his fierce protestation that Nobody leaves a man like me, and went on to achieve great success as an artist and academic in her own right. A 1948 photograph of the couple on holiday in Golfe-Juan shows her walking magnificently in front while Picasso follows behind, shading his love with a parasol. Her power, and his vulnerability to it, are palpable. Gilot is a fresh yet complex scent, inspired by the Mediterranean, dedicated to formidable women.

Notes: Bergamot, grapefruit, freesia, neroli, bitter almond, nutmeg, musk, moss, white marshmallow.

fonteyn iiuvo

Fonteyn

IIUVO

According to Alhacen’s Theory of Visual Perception, “Darkness makes beauty appear, for the stars only appear in darkness”. An element of the sinister throws beauty into starker relief, as in the early photography of Stanley Kubrick and a 1970 recording of Frederick Ashton’s Nocturne ballet. The legendary prima ballerina, Margot Fonteyn, seems to dance a beautiful solo, until the camera pans left and reveals a shadowy figure behind, for whom Fonteyn’s performance is a desperate entreaty. Likewise, Kubrick’s haunting images of Chicago in the forties are filled with eery details, glimpsed only at the last moment. When the shadowy figure finally advances into the light, Fonteyn falls to her knees in tears before him, undone. Inspired by the impulses explored by these two artists, Fonteyn is a scent of tender delicacy, laced with depravity.

Notes: Grapefruit, rosemary, wormwood, cardamom, rose, blackcurrent buds, freesia, violet, papyrus, moss, vanilla, vetiver, patchouli, virginia cedar.
