Nurtured by the aura of the Third Eye Chakra, the vortex of wisdom that possesses the gift to see both our inner and outer worlds, Le Sixieme Parfum is the sixth fragrance created by Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupre. Combining bright vibrancy with smoldering warmth, Le Sixieme Parfum tantalizes the senses to harmonize mind, body and spirit for divine unification of the whole self.
The energy of Ajna, the sixth chakra, allows us to access the inner guidance that springs from the depths of our being. When fully illuminated, both hemispheres of the brain are synchronized, integrating the creativity and synthetic thinking of the right hemisphere with the logical and analytical thought processes of the left hemisphere.
Le Sixieme Parfum is a smooth, sizzling affair. A scent that replicates the cool shimmer that results when a piece of undeniable logic drops into place. Juicy bergamot opens the composition, it’s tangy intensity melding playfully with tart, acerbic lemon and the sparkling heat of pink pepper. This bright, constructed beginning gives way to a more emotional space: the heart of Le Sixieme is velvet. Romantic osmanthus absolute is rich and provocative, a heady sweetness that stirs the soul. Meanwhile, moody orris concrete titillates and seduces, it’s shadowy beauty entrancing yet evasive. Lush jasmin absolute holds these opposing floral forces together, and its sumptuous contours give us something literal (versus intellectual) to lean into. A seductive patchouli intertwines lusciously with labdanum and smoldering cedarwood, the dual smoky textures signaling a winding down. Soft suede, salty ambroxan and a magical musk catch and contain all the nuances and effects of this sensuous, transformation: crystalline clarity is achieved.
