From the inner self to the outside world, from the smallest to the largest, the composition of Close Up revels in contrast and oscillating opposition. A full bodied fragrance, Close up is seamlessly invigorated by luminous, bittersweet anise and tangy-bright green coffee. Griotte cherry produces a mouthwatering sweetness that makes us imagine the ripe rapture of regeneration. White tobacco is dulcet and smoky, a gentle, ghostly energy that ushers in the sumptuous smolder of patchouli and the drier, rose-tinged smoke of Atlas cedar. Intense, contrasting colors are refracted through the sheer weight of amber. As the crystal crag of saline energy (amber) catches and solidifies the gentle, smoky drift of Close Up’s heart, musk settles like a fine fog over everything, smoothly encompassing the kinks and delightful wrinkles in time of Close Up. Tonka bean is a final flourish, a savory sweet sparkle that catapults this scent from encapsulated object status to powerfully present. Close Up exists in a mind bending continuum, alternating between a playful, Chuck Close-esque exposé and a universe-wide revelation. The resituating, mysterious power of photography, distilled.
