Mirroring in a Dream
“my inspiration comes from the fact mercury is a fluid element, not a solid. i wanted to give the impression of a shiny and bright fluidity with metallic inflections, but very clean ones… it had to be a fragrance with a strong impact because mercury for me is dynamic and evokes modernity and technology. i’ve played with a metal effect twisted with a clean, technological and dynamic aspect in order to translate my idea of mercury in an odor. for the metal effect i’ve created an oxide accord, while a mix of aldehydes, rhubarb and mandarin reproduce the clean dynamic and technological character. the dry-down is woody with notes of cedar wood and sandalwood.” Antoine Lie.
