SHE WAS AN ANOMALY
Iris, Sandalwood, Musks,…
FOR THE ONE YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND
« My mother, she was an anomaly, she was brilliant, she was loved but she paid a huge price. » from an Interview with Lisa Simone, in What Happened Miss Simone ?
« I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, it can only be attributable to human error. This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye. » HAL 9000 iconic quote in 2001 : A Space Odyssey.
These remarks could summarize our new perfume, a marriage of Nina Simone and Stanley Kubrick. This fragrance is dedicated to them, to celebrate their talents, their deviations from the norm, from the theoretical value, from the expected. This disparity comes with an excess, from a « computer malfunction », forcing the dose on the iris and musk, and this sublime jeopardy has sprung up to become a perfume, carved by Daniela Andrier. A singularity. A difference. This perfume was necessary.
