Associated for milenia with the most elevated states, violet is also the highest frequency of visible light. In lumen_esce, Frank Voelkl plays on both meanings of the word, expressing the color’s radiance by exploring the full spectrum of the flower’s scent.
lumen_esce is the shock of pure beauty, uncorrupted and irrefutable. Unfazed by its own dazzle, this scent sets about to astonish and enliven every setting into which it enters. Initially a cool-as-cucumber essence of violet leaf blows, like a sweet breeze of breath that could only issue forth from the lips of a deity. Recognition dawns upon beholding the sizzling Violettyne, who shoots high voltage current straight from the hip and is illuminated, from bloom to roots, in an azure-lavender neon glow. Her petals quiver as she emerges, half angry and half excited at being woken from her Goddess slumber. As she moves she scatters flowers scented with what smells like the soft, lyrical powder of a springtime posy (pure freesia, sweet, seductive jasmine, that eternal idol iris and rose, redolent of romance). Patchouli Prisma, a high-tech natural ingredient distilled and reassembled to enhance its original woody warmth, is a black light for this radiant bouquet, that is her highness Violettyne. Light up a room or trigger your own personal Big Bang in this, a vivacious violet vehicle for change.
