Violet colored rice powder on an elegant face. Enamel violets, cigarettes, Victorian silk and velvet, Pygmalion, Nureyev, shades of mauve. A collision of natural, rough, artificial, delicate. The narrative snapshots of photographer Hiromix.
From Regime des Fleurs
A mauve-filtered witness of a Kyoto university student’s starched suit. Contemplative, soft, layered powdered and floral elements. A delicate secret tucked behind teeth.
From Alia Raza
Himitsu, meaning “secret” is a love letter to Kyoto, penned by Christopher and addressed to me. We’d shared a fondness for Japan and I was moved by the scenes of Kyoto he’d paint in my mind while encouraging me to visit. Together we dreamt up a character: a quiet, contemplative student. Genderless, richly layered, someone subtle in nature but sure to make their mark. And from there the fragrance was born.
