Histoires de Parfums 1472 Eau de Parfum
Opening on a blindingly white accord of artemisia, rosemary and a playful solar accord reminiscent of golden sunrays, 1472 is arched over a magnificent jasmine sambac absolute, of utmost purity. The sweetness of cinnamon is introduced to a base of devilishly treacly rum absolute, its molassey and woody scent melding with the carnal purr of an ambergris base.
Vividly clear, delightfully androgynous, at once sweet and woody, floral and spicy, 1472 is a veritable journey that will take you to olfactory depths and heights in the tradition of Histoires de Parfums' creations. It is the scent of fleeing seconds and unquenched desires that morph into a wild, exhilarating passion; the scent of love teetering on the brink of addiction, of elegance on the brink of vanity, it is also the scent of those terrestrial sparks of joy that, for the span of a second, give a glimpse of what Eternity, whether good or evil, feels like…
This date, the earliest in the Histoires de Parfums collection, is that of the first edition of one of the most beautiful and influential works of mediaeval poetry: la Divina Commedia. Written by Dante Alighieri, this work, divided into three books -Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso- is a long metaphor on good and evil, on sin and virtue, faith and faithlessness – more than anything, it is an exploration if not an introspection on the reality of salvation. Taking a spin on Dante’s masterpiece, 1472 imagines, not an ascent to heaven, but a slow and luscious descent to hell – to discover that hell is the place where gluttony and lust come together in their sultriest form. Made in France.
