BLUES is a colorist scent that was created for a performance, ALL BLUES, expressing the sacred, celestial aspects of the color, as well as its earthy grittiness and depth. Each note corresponds to a movement suite of the choreographed piece. This is the first Atelier de Geste in-house mixed, natural perfume of exquisite ingredients from the finest sustainable essence farms in the world. The first edition of this scent will be limited to 100 pieces in 2016. Blues pairs the sensual mystery of woods and marine notes with heady florals and bright resins. Initially pungent and searingly bright, Blues eventually resolves into a statuesque, chypre beauty, its evolutionary journey as remarkable as the end result. Neroli and olibanum marry at the outset of this scent to create a thick, fresh adhesive tack. Seaweed reinforces this sticky texture, simultaneously dissolving this finish with its saline fervor. Vetiver surfaces, a clean yet spicy blade of green that sluices through preceding notes and paves the way for a clearer perspective in Blues. Petitgrain reiterates the pinging, alert quality of neroli at the start, it’s bright light signaling a gear shift. A sultry, sweet jasmine resolves under petitgrain’s yellow beam. Dulcet, smoky chords of cedarwood echo jasmine’s siren call. Oakmoss absolute is the grand, finishing touch on this remarkable scent, creating a gauzy, gentle conclusion to a scent that was once seemed devoid of such lushness. An iconoclastic stunner, Blues captures the full spectrum of this color.
