Perfumer Olivia Giacobetti has taken a fresh look at the perfume she composed in 1999, Passage d’Enfer, infusing her signature with new impact and an olfactory wink.
A remarkable flower became the symbol of this new creation: a variety of lily native to Asia called Red Spider Lily, because of its petals that shimmer in a halo of radiant flames.
This "resurrection lily”, which blooms at the autumn equinox, is synonymous with metamorphosis. In some traditions, it celebrates change; in others, the journey to another world, guiding us to a forgotten paradise with its heady scent.
Defying fate and the limits of time, the dry freshness of incense is rounded off with the scents of lily, creamy sandalwood, benzoin and vanilla.
