Bogue Profumo




Contrasting | Evolution | Structured

In the artisanal quality and structural perfection of the Bogue collection, O/E initially seems eclipsed by its two greater beasts, Maai and Mem. And yet one needs to try O/E to better understand the architectural advantages of skilled artisans building block by block, or in this case olfactory chord by olfactory chord.

The agrestic and vivacious top notes are constructed by materials which suggest a solar combustion: citruses with thick rinds, like bergamot, lemon and grapefruit, complement the herbal elements of rosemary, thyme and camphor. It would suggest the wildness of the bush up to now, but brace yourself for the unexpected succession into the spicy cloves and the clean pine-y notes of the terpenes, which transport you into a forest clearing. You will see what we mean when we say that architectural trompe-l’oeil is perhaps the cunningest way of creating space. O/E seems to float like something which travels on ether, like smoke from a ritualistic pyre which you can feel from afar, almost seeing it before you can see it. It’s an experience and a trip rolled into one.
