Description: Between shadow and light, an interpretation of the work of Pierre Soulages on a mysterious inky backdrop. An elusive composition made up of contrasts.
"Absolute black bursting with light, like a painting by Pierre Soulages.”
Alexandra Carlin was inspired by the creations of Pierre Soulages to try to capture their essence. She imagined a perfume with no fixative, no background noise: a journey through various abstract and contrasting facets expressing black in its infinite luminosity.
The result: an eau de cuir that defies definition. An overdose of pepper, styrax, fucus, and cade dotted with blackcurrant buds: a dark colour palette to capture every intense layer of black. The shine of black ink, evoking dark mercury and the dullness of cooling lava.
Alexandra Carlin has a natural artistic sensitivity and appreciates all forms of expression such as dance or literature. She draws her inspiration from her fascination with the power of words. In her perfumes, she reveals places and atmospheres, in the manner of an author in her novel.
After an apprenticeship at ISIPCA, the reference school in the perfume, cosmetics and flavours sectors, she began her career as a perfumer with Maurice Roussel. She works mainly on the essential oils that fascinate her and whose many facets she tirelessly exploits.
Alexandra Carlin signed the Noiressence and Gingerlise perfumes from Jus.
