Abstract | Carnation | Rubbery
Untitled is a perfume born out of a year long evolutionary process rather than following a brief. What started as an idea to create a carnation perfume, resulted in an expressive scent that also bears witness to its creation. A powerful and dark composition in extrait concentration, it is a combination of a millefleurs and a soliflore. Born out of an unrepeatable process, the perfume is limited to 99 bottles.
The symbolic and minimalist flacon and packaging was co-designed with Francesca Gotti. The flacon contains a single red glass bead from a 99 piece traditional prayer bead.
The numbered and signed cards inside are marked with an imprint of one of the bottle prototypes that was left unused.
Type: Woody floral with spicy, smoky and industrial facets.
"I made the first sketch for this composition in November 2018. The inspiration was to make a carnation scent. Making a carnation without using Eugenol could be interesting to try, I thought. The rest, I did not know.
During the last year, I've made seventy sketches, all heavily influenced by my personal life. I took some wildly different directions along the way, some weren't even in any way could be thought as a carnation scent. But there was always a steadily evolving stem. Concepts and ideas wrapped themselves around the seed idea: incarnation, death, doubt, reduction, confinement, yearning, maze, divinity. It took shape in an organic way, me halfway between perfumer and audience. I trusted I would get there, somehow--every self-criticism satisfied or silenced.
20% of this final composition is made up of all the sketches and reference materials. 80% is the final version of the evolving form, simplified and clear. A hybrid of the process and the result, the flower and the millefleurs" - Omer
