So utterly luminous it’s almost beyond human hearing, Plein Jeu III-V is an elegant, minimalist composition that fills the heart with the free polyphony of angels. Like watching sunlight stream through stained glass, Plein Jeu illuminates centuries of invisible matter. Lemon and ginger evoke this simple yet breathtaking effect, tiny motes of freshness that shape the silent air of this scent. Mimosa is the softest sweetness, immediately balanced by the sharp, razor’s edge of pepper, a simultaneous speaking that mimics the contrasting musicality of this stop on the pipes. Amber, incense and jasmine engender a burst of phonic energy that emerges seemingly out of nowhere, but which registers as a seamless, beautiful build. Cedar, fir and moss create a feathery effervescence that makes this scent dance on skin, while patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver (meted out with a precise, discerning hand) illustrate the spaces that surround this illumination; dark, mysterious, and as of yet, unexplored. Sweetly and eternally just beyond comprehension, Plein Jeu III-V is simple, spiritual purity.
