Cuir d'Ange Eau de toilette - front

The story behind

“For a long time I’d wanted to reveal the importance I attach to literature, and how it corresponds to perfume. More significantly, I wanted to evoke my discovery of the work of Jean Giono. Two words from a passage in Jean le Bleu came back to me “cuir d’ange” – angel leather. Using the smells that are my words, I wanted to write a poem to rekindle the love duet between leather and the skin. Its softness and lightness, its tension and caress. Heliotropes and hawthorn, leather and musk.”
Jean-Claude Ellena
