I will tell you a funny story that happened very recently. The other day in Vienna, I went to the cinema. Next to me there was a lady I didn’t know at all..she looked at me and smiled. I looked at her and I smiled back.
After a while, she looked at me again and she smiled. I smiled back. And then, she looked at me and smiled again for the third time but this time she also said: You are wearing a fantastic perfume!
Of course I had to tell her which perfume it was and naturally she noted the name of it down on her mobile phone. I am glad she liked my perfume and I loved her honesty and spontaneity.
I loved the fact that she asked me directly and that because of me, she might have found a new favourite perfume.
What is a perfume for you? And why do you wear it?
The other day I received a collection of three Starck Paris fragrances at home: Peau de Soie, Peau de Pierre, and Peau d’Ailleurs. Each Starck Paris fragrance came with a little note with story that had me thinking of its creations and the messages they want to transmit.
Peau de Soie is a paradox where femininity blossoms from a masculine bud. Peau de Pierre is a masculine fragrance which unveils its feminine side. And Peau d’Ailleurs is an exploration into ourselves.
For the French designer Philippe Starck “to wear a perfume is to create one’s own territory”.
I personally tend to wear a perfume, not only when I go out, but also at home. I am a firm believer that a few drops of a good perfume have the power to make me feel good. That’s the point of wearing a perfume after all, no?

The inspiration behind the photos of this blog post was exactly that positive feeling that a perfume makes me feel. I wanted to transform this positive feeling into images and through the images to be a little part of Philippe Starck’s visionary world.
