SILVR LIGHTNING – EAU DE PARFUM

$80.00

A FLASH OF AIRY EFFERVESCENCE: metallic Aldehydes, Blackcurrant glaze, white Cardamom, smoked Tea leaves, Pink Pepper, Ambrette, Orris and Vetiver. Run on clean energy with a cutting edge Eau de Parfum created by Jean Claude Delville.

0.5 fl.oz/ 15 ml

Crisp and fluid holographic sensuality: there is a definite modernism about this metallic, pure and a bit abstract construction, and yet it is never cold or simply mineral, but instead feels alive and textured like a luxurious fresh white cotton fabric. Built around Aldehydes (a family of sharp and effervescent organic compounds), it also evokes the purity of water, the airiness of high skies and seems loaded with electric energy. It is made carnal by the addition of spices, smoked tea leaves and blackcurrant, and luxurious with noble base notes like Ambrette, Orris and Vetiver. Overall it carries an aura of casual elegance with a refreshing sparkling initial impression.

In  2017, Jean Claude Delville co-founded The Society of Scent, an innovative digital platform dedicated to Scent Culture, with its own Laboratory located in the South Bronx. Here is what he had to say about himself in a recent conversation:

“Combining colors, music notes, taking pictures of flower arrangements were a simple passion and I knew that I could have spent long hours playing with any of these elements. As a teenager, life caught me by surprise and gave me a chance to become a perfumer, a rare job, fascinating, different, full of joy and tears. I was born in Paris France but very early, traveling, exploring and discovering new sensations were like an addiction. After many years on the road I realized that my heart and soul would always be away from my roots and after experiencing America I realized that New York City was the place where I belonged and  felt free to create. When life is inspiring me to create a perfume, I escape, I transcend, I forget the world and disappear into my research. It is a very particular experience. I have been called a French revolutionary and I love it, if that’s what it takes to capture a new emotion in a bottle , tell a new story, a new melody. I am a lucky man, I love what I do and I want to continue to design very special fragrances.”
