Caress of Dawn
(La Caresse de l’aube)
In dialogue with a tattoo already here by @neal_panda .
No stencil, no pen, no pre-determined idea : total free machine for Octave, who brought his perfume to let me interpret it.
After being soaked, the fundamental question was : how to depict what this perfume incarnates, and what its stands for - in a sensible way.
Where to start ? How to ink the heart of its temperament, let speak its fragrance ?
The answer came naturally, when I forgot everything about narrative process, any desire to « give a body » to this abstract feeling. Forget the storytelling about this story.
Because, this story was already told each day, at its best.
Because, the entire being was already here, and we also could hear the heartbeat.
Octave is alive, and wears this perfume. So, he actually already gives everything to it.
The only thing I could do - the only thing that I had to do, to respect this project and bring it a new kind of beauty, was to become a perfume myself. Not trying to draw visions I had about it, but to really live it.
Wrap a part of his body, like a jet in the atmosphere. With the first intense and funny touch, then the pure dialogue : the dance of the leather notes circulating on the skin.
Shut the mental down, just for a while…
Opening the heart, to connect us, things around, make a new inner space and create a fusion.
Thank you for this beautiful opportunity to have been a perfume on your skin, just for one day and to inspire you : make you understand, that the best inspiration is your own self. This is the revelation of Serge Lutens, I think.
