Pierre Guillaume Paris - 9.1 Komorebi
An untranslatable Japanese noun, Komorebi eloquently describes the light of the sun filtered through tree leaves. Its etymology reveals the sophistication and poetry of the concept distilled into it by the Japanese spirit : the three kanji that express it mean « tree », « escape » and « light ». Komorebi is the light that links sky and earth, guided by the most potent symbol of nature: the tree.
The vegetal world, air and light are the three leading principles that inspired Pierre Guillaume for this rework of the House's theme 09, the « aromatic floral », explored for the first time in 2006 with Yuzu Ab Irato. This time, the perfumer offers the vegetal poetry of an armful of fresh leaves and plump berries. Its scent draws us into a romantic forest, the light of the sun filtering through the leaves of oak and hazel trees on a beautiful summer day.
KOMOREBI captivates us with the Japanese art of silent elegance. The fragrance opens with invigorating notes of fresh mint - neither strong nor intense like the aroma of Moroccan mint, but much more subtle, almost whispering. After this refreshingly green start, the heart of the creation is revealed, beating to the rhythm of reseda's delicate yet charismatic fragrance, whose balsamic nature is skilfully faceted by powdery green mimosa. Juicy blackcurrant also adds a sensual, fruity dimension. The base notes are led by fine hazel and expressive oak, wrapped in the absolute of the tonka bean. A harmonious symbiosis between refined elegance and untouched nature!
