After the protests of 1968, Paris, the “City of Lights” became a smouldering hotbed of artistic and sexual exploration. Serge Gainsbourg and his lover, Jane Birkin released “Je t’aime”; Yves Saint Laurent debuted semi-sheer evening gowns and artists converged on the city to immerse themselves in this vital counter cultural revolution.
L’Objet’s founder Elad Yifrach travels back to these heady times in his latest release, Oh Mon Dieu! With his exceptional nose, the perfumer has combined notes of cognac, lipstick, incense, leather, plum and caramel in a sexy, wild scent. “Glamour was ageless and effortless, and women were as bold as their lipstick colour, flaunting their freedom, style, and powers of seduction,” he says. The hand made Limoges porcelain candle features a graphic “69” while a pop art mouth appears as an irresistibly pouty incense holder.
The ultimate fragrance that captures the zeitgeist of now, and then, and who doesn’t want to channel their inner Jane Birkin?
