A person become wild after withdrawing from the urban world, his wanderings across all the scents of nature and his meanders in the forest have made this green adventurer a Bête Humaine with a passion for chestnut trees.

“Since the 17th century, philosophers have dreamt of defning humans' relationship to animals. Whether I am called “Homo sapiens”, “Modern man”, “Mankind”, “Human” or “Human being”, I am an animal. A wild man, a mythological fgure in literature and art. I am the link between civilised humanity and the Elven spirits of an untamed nature. I live free in faraway lands, mysterious forests and boundless plains. My skin and my fur are both my weakness and my protection. I live naked, wearing only my scent which is that of nature. Ice-cold rivers, resinous forests, blazing rocks heated by the sun, carpets of leaves where I sleep. I am hunted and a hunter, like a beast. Driven by fear, armed with strength, cloaked in my scent. I am a man with a lion’s heart. BÊTE HUMAINE is my species."

Liquides Imaginaires are an olfactive conception of designer Philippe Di Méo, presented during his 2011 exhibition at La Maison des Champs-Elysées. If perfume was used in ancient times to communicate to the gods “through the smoke” (lat. per fumum), its contemporary incarnation is deeply symbolic: allowing humans to pass from material to immaterial worlds, from the solid to the liquid, from the visible to the invisible. A full intake of the perfume’s vibration and let yourself succumb to its wonderment, to its power of elevation. Going far beyond the simplistic function of a beauty accessory, Les Liquides Imaginaires carry their greatness in the freedom of their creator. From romanticism to surrealism, these perfumes are fuelled by this same desire to escape from reality. They beseech their admirers to overcome the veil of beauty and slip away to unknown lands where mystical fragrances float in the air. The thoughts of Philippe Di Méo are rooted in powerful myths, the beauty of the Holy Nature, history and transiency of passions. These olfactive trilogies are perfumes of elevation.
