Launched early September 2016, renowned French designer Philippe Starck releases his premier set of fragrances Peau de Soie, Peau d'Ailleurs and Peau de Pierre, presented exclusivly TRANOÏ Paris: Parfums in January, 2017.
The link between Philippe Starck and perfumes goes back a long way. Evoking this world inevitably takes Starck to the olfactory sensations of a childhood still within reach, only skin deep: a far-off memory that says a great deal about the source of his interest in scents, perfumes and fragrances. The memory of his mother’s perfume shop immediately comes to Starck’s mind. It was here, in the cramped back room, that he spent many hours, discovering the intoxicating, unique aromas.
“I loved to take refuge in this place; I was nowhere and at the same time I was everywhere. Because of the aromas, the exponential sum of the perfumes, beauty creams, lotions and shampoos, I traveled through an uncharted territory filled with incredible riches. What I did not know at the time was that I was growing up inside the most powerful vehicle for the mind and the unconscious”
With Daphné Bugey, Annick Ménardo and Dominique Ropion, the three master perfumers who helped him to produce this first collection, they have flown in the face of convention and conformism. In order to better explore and challenge the limits of their creativity, they had no forbidden territories, especially not regarding the materials. Each fragrance has its duo of creator and writer of scents. At each stage of its design, this diagonal conversation made it possible to create balanced accords, enigmatic enough to keep the identity of the different ingredients safe.
The Starck fragrances are currently stocked at LECLAIREUR and Liquides.
