Peau by Arquiste at Indigo Perfumery
The nape of the neck, the idealized scent at a lover and a lost embrace.
Peau's soft cruelty lies in its evocation of youth and life, by nature impermanent. From top, heart and base notes, it includes in itself the promise of intimacy and the indescribable memory of skin: salty, soft and musky.
Peau focuses on the tragic love story between Hadrian and Antinoös, allowing us to explore the theme of adoration. Hadrian exalted Antinoös’ image through thousands of statues and portraits, showing us how the antique world defined the spiritual presence in the physical shape of the body.
For perfumers, the olfactive memory of skin becomes another tool to idealize and preserve in our memory the contours of physical love.
