Starck: Peau de nuit infinie & Peau de lu mier e magique

PEAU DE NUIT INFINIE AND PEAU DE LUMIÈRE MAGIQUE 

Two new fragrances will be joining Peau de Soie, Peau de Pierre and Peau d’Ailleurs in the Starck  Paris Peau perfume collection.
The PEAU DE NUIT INFINIE and PEAU DE LUMIÈRE MAGIQUE eau de parfum fragrances  are new and unexpected reflections of their creator’s innermost imagination.
“Perfume tells a story, an extraordinary story that transports us to another world”: between blue  dreams and white flashes, between infinity and enchantment.

PEAU DE NUIT INFINIE EAU DE PARFUM FOR MEN

Peau de Nuit Infinie is a JOURNEY  to an unknown, infinite universe, a fragrance that takes you to a place  you have never been, from the depth of  darkness to dusky twilight.” Philippe Starck

FOR HIM: In the dark beauty of the night,  a man is alone with himself. Facing his own  reflection, he asks himself questions and  explores the deepest reaches of his soul.
In humble and almost solemn fashion, he  compares himself to something IMMENSE,  beyond his being: a charming, moving and  captivating inner shadow emerges.


IT’S THE NIGHT, THE FRAGRANCE OF THE NIGHT 

But how can one hold on to the night?  What scent does this concealed and limitless  mysterious place have?

“At night, I DREAM. I experience things  beyond my understanding, I breath rarefied  air. I explore places I know nothing about  and I uncover incredible, infinite new worlds.”  Philippe Starck grasped these fleeting, intangible memories of dreams to create Peau de Nuit Infinie, transforming an evocation  into a feeling and thrill into emotion.

INTIMACY, MINERALITY, MASCULINITY, DENSITY, SOLEMNITY

One might think that there is nothing to the night, but... “It’s absolutely abundant, especially in the dusky twilight.  There is something special in the making, a glimmer of  light flickering like a PROMISE.”

PERFUME CREATION 

DELPHINE LEBEAU is the renowned  master perfumer, known for her audacity, her  extractions with notes of root, wood and iron,  with whom a collaboration was formed to  bring Philippe Starck’s perfume vision to life.
“To convey this vision, I had to venture into  Philippe Starck’s world of emotions. Each  of my choices was guided by EMOTION carried by raw materials. Peau de Nuit Infinie  reveals the depth of a dark, impenetrable and  unforgettable night. Beyond the night shadows,  its scent is one of an introspective journey, rich  with countless possibilities.”

A STORY TO BE WORN ON THE SKIN 

A mineral chord, which, beyond its initial cold  and peaceful semblance, is brimming with an  infinite quest for purity, revealed by its freshness,  the vibrancy of bergamot and lemon/ambergris  and fossilised wood pay tribute to eternally  immortalised beauty/a leathery hint, with an  animal yet velvety feel, a touch of dense, dark  and sensual tenderness.
Peau de Nuit Infinie invites you to take a dreamlike journey into infinity,  to an unknown world, as mysterious as an illusion and as sensual as a fantasy.

PEAU DE LUMIÈRE MAGIQUE EAU D E PARFUM FOR HER

“Peau de Lumière Magique initially feels  a few empty drops, but their fantastic  capacity sheds light on what is essential: life, a furtive vision of happiness, of a place  full of light and wonder.” Philippe Starck
FOR HER, a WOMAN facing life, her life.  Her dreams are still her future. As if haloed  by a divine grace, she enters the light, dazzled  and DAZZLING, heading towards a happy  future, as beautiful a virginal experience, an  unexpected bout of faith.

IT’S THE LIGHT, THE FRAGRANCE OF RADIATING SHADOW 

The white moment when light reveals the  inexpressible, life at sunrise, is beautiful and  rare. But what perfume reflects this dazzling  moment in which everything begins?
“I wanted to inhale this light, the extremely  intense ETHER of virtually nothing, which is  so powerful when it is dazzling. Everything  can happen, for even blind, we are  overwhelmed by an inner force that opens  our eyes to a sunny and warm future. It is  like a furtive glimpse of future happiness, a  DELIGHT. And, day after day, the sun rises  bright and the perfume is always there with  the same beauty. To wake up to the same  perfume, as with unique love, is divine.”

VIBRANCY, RADLANCE, FEMINITY, FULFILMENT, HOPE

One might think that there is nothing to light, but...  “It is so powerful. Nothing would exist without light.
Everything can be right in front of you, but without light,  you will never find it. Light feeds life, it is  EXTRAORDINARILY dazzling.”

PERFUME CREATION 

To ensure Peau de Lumière Magique was  brought to life with all of its fragrant  enchantment, Philippe Starck commissioned  the talented perfume maker DAPHNE BUGEY,  who is renowned for how she masters her art  in an inquisitive and imaginative manner.
They had previously worked together  to create Peau de Pierre.
“I was inspired by light: candid, dazzling,  intense. Light spreads everywhere, just like  perfume. White FLOWERS, innocent yet  potent, contrast with chiaroscuro treated wood  to create this shining halo of light.”

A STORY TO BE WORN ON THE SKIN 

A sparkling floral and fresh chord, with citrus  and peppery notes / instant flash like a dazzling ray of zenithal light created from a duo of white flowers, Indian jasmine  and ginger blossoms / a golden halo with a touch of patchouli, unveiling woody  and mysterious radiance.
Peau de Lumière Magique is the very essence of a perfume that, like the daily magic of human intelligence, opens our senses to extraordinary worlds.

A COLLECTION OF FRAGRANCES

In line with the previous offerings of the  collection, the Peau de Nuit Infinie and Peau  de Lumière Magique bottles have kept a sober  design, adorned this time with a metallic touch  of gold or silver. They are harmonious and  intriguing in their flowing shape: one the blue-  violet shade of the night sky, the other as light  as the rising sun.
Each box features the Starck SIGNATURE,  a message and a male or female face, whose  gaze is only partially revealed, as captured by  photographer Dominique Issermann.
