Dedicated and inspired by the terrible fire of the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Notre-Dame 15.4.2019 invites us not to pause on this moment, but to unlock the essence that marks both this sacred place and sublime event.
Perfumer Filippo Sorcinelli intended to fix three main moments in this extrait de parfum: the triggering event, the water on the stones, and the essence that remains. Its essence is not incense, as one might expect, but that of smoke. Smoke mingling with the water that overflows from the stones, which descends to the sides of the organ. Today, it is a glimpse of the vaults that let the light in from the naked sky. It is the scent of uninterrupted life, of the unimpaired soul, it is the Cross made of spouting gold.
An homage beyond the olfactory, the cap is a monolith of burnt wood, evoking the tragic moment. The interior of the packing folds out, four falling ‘wings’ painted and signed directly by Filippo Sorcinelli with symbols, colours, and stylistic features attributable to the Cathedral of Paris.
