The inspiration for Aqaysos, [a-kwa-i-zos], Pierre Guillaume’s newest addition to the Huitième Art collection, is the penetrating, multi-faceted and brilliant character of crystal. “Pierre Guillaume plays resonances between the ingredients, to distort our perception as a prism diffracts the light … Between fluidity, transparency and sensorial impact; Aqaysos is an explosion of rising and fruity notes, on the rhythmic pulsations of a woody vibration.The perfume opens with a duo of lime and bergamot, whose explosive fresh notes blend in an organic and metallic duality with the aromatic accents of coriander. The sansho berry, which fusing notes evoke pepper and lemon, give a crystalline spicy aspect to the fruity sweetness of blackcurrant. In the dry-down, the bitter wood character of cocoa beans, as an ultimate olfactory illusion, plays a contrast between clean and dirty with a blend of woods and a cocktail of white and animalic musks.”
Notes: Lime, Coriander, Black Currant, Sansho Berry, Woods, Musks, Cocoa beans
