I just finished telling my husband about the idea behind this fragrance and he thought I should share on my blog.
A.P.C. designer Jean Toitou and M/M (Paris) created the hand carved wood box which is meant to resemble the waves on a computer screen that a 12-string guitar makes when playing the opening chord of the Kinks’ “Waterloo Sunset.” Along with perfumer Haley Alexander Van Oosten, Toitou created the 12 essential oils scent to smell like the inside of a guitar case strewn with rose petals. “The perception of the smell of a guitar case —lined in bright velvet— in which rose petals would have been scattered.” With notes of wood, resin and rose.... Mmmmm....I can smell it now. In fact, I can hear now also!
