A smoky messenger of both a beginning and an end.
Creation: Lyn Harris
Sensuality: Revolution is a fragrance that permeates the skin, and builds up on human emotions throughout the day. It blends in, leaving an air of mystery and intrigue around the body.
The streets of Paris during the French Revolution, an odour of smoke and musket powder. Rage and intense emotions on the faces of the crowds. Houses are afire, and the cobblestones awash in oil; horses are whinnying; their and sweaty riders are robed in black leather. A touch of incense softens the air, suggesting peace is near.
“Revolution captures a moment in history, a period when smells were raw and prevailed everywhere. History is alive in this composition where smoke, wood, leather and incense reign. Yet modern elements in the formula let the scent breathe. A form of harmony is born out of these contrasting notes, leaving an elegant, clean, smoky wood-scented backdrop that remains on the skin.” - Lyn Harris.
