THÉORIE DES HUMEURS
“In ancient medicine, the body was held in balance thanks to four humours, precious liquids within the body described by Hippocrates, to ensure harmony and to restore balance and spirit. Drawing inspiration from this theory, the Trilogie des Humeurs aims to summon perfume and its power to focus our emotions, enhance reality and disturb and heightenour senses.With these subtle olfactory potions, I offer you a chance to unleash the strength of your imagination”. Philippe Di Méo
MELANCOLIA - The water of the spirit
Aristotle wondered why I charmed exceptional people. Why my black bile, my sweet melancholy hab affected philosophers, poets, artists and even heroes like Hercules? I am the queen of a rainy land dear to Baudelaire. I am the state of the soul that makes me a "sacred disease". A liquid that used, to be called "umore". I am your mood, whether good or bad. I interrupt your mind with visions of madness and of genius. My perfume transcends nostalgia and awakens the spleen. I am the water of the spirit, MELANCOLIA.
