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.”
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.”
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.
