What Does Histoires de Parfums 1/.6 Smell Like?
If you close your eyes and breathe in 1/.6, you’ll picture yourself sipping a tall glass of orange juice as you overlook a luscious Mediterranean garden bursting with gloriously creamy, sun-kissed white florals.
The scent showcases a striking, sparkling opening of sweet orange, almost-aromatic grapefruit and sharp, bitter yuzu, before revealing a heady heart of fresh orange blossom, aquatic lotus and green neroli. Finally, the fragrance settles into a softer, more seductive base of sweet vanilla, white musks and earthy vetiver; it’s sun-drenched summer in a bottle.Top notes are Sweet Orange, Grapefruit, Yuzu. Heart notes are Lotus, Neroli, Orange Blossom. Base notes are White Musks, Vanilla, Vetiver.
Why it’s Escentual:
Here at Escentual, we love it when perfumes have strong, unique and interesting stories behind them - and 1/.6 has no less than two stories behind it! As a part of the This Is Not A Blue Bottle collection, the perfume’s name is derived from ‘The Treachery of Images', a famous work by surrealist artist, René Magritte. The painting shows the image of a pipe above a declaration which translates from French to read, “this is not a pipe”. Since the 1920s, this playful piece of art has been encouraging novices and art experts alike to come to the realisation that the pipe is not in fact a pipe, but a depiction of one, encouraging us to think about art, our imagination and understanding on a larger scale. In the same way that this painting challenges us, Histoires de Parfums encourage us to view the This Is Not A Blue Bottle collection as an allegory of a fragrant big bang exploding with colour and emotion, which leads us to the second element of 1/.6 Eau de Parfum’s story.
Inspired by Paul Eluard’s love poem, ‘The World Is Blue As An Orange’, Histoires de Parfums 1/.6 takes a surrealistic approach to celebrate joyous love. Sparkling citruses create a feeling of evergreen love, while white florals hint at love’s purity before the sensual, musky base is revealed. Even the vibrant, vivid and flamboyant flacon pays homage to this poem through its juxtaposing blue and orange design. It’s fair to say that if you love joyful citruses and heady white florals that remind you of previously-forgotten summer holidays, then you’ll adore 1/.6.
