GANYMEDE | Composed by perfumer Quentin Bisch, Ganymede once again makes use of the suede-leathery notes that made B683 a beautiful classic. This time though, the artists emancipated from traditional codes to take us somewhere else, towards a luminous and fluid elegance. Those leather notes become softer, gaining lightness and gentleness in contact with the fragrance of violet. The mandarin smell brings its full vivacity and its acidic essence. The latter gives the tone and verticality of the fragrance from the very start. Yet opposing it, the immortelle is its counterpoint and raises the scented harmony with its double-sided fragrance, at times mineral, at other times salty.
The entire composition plays with contrasts and oppositions. The notes answer one another in a permanent conversation drawing a new olfactory map on the skin, on the revers of a cashmere jacket, or even right there, next to the buttons of the sleeves, on the wrist. If it could be summed up into once single image, it would be a compass: north for the zested liveliness of the mandarin to which the south would answer with the everlasting flower and to highlight this olfactory frame, the density of suede notes on the west would balance the subtle and delicate florality of the violet on the east. Those are four directions for a perfumed journey to a new imaginary world and new codes of elegance.
