For Paul Vacher’s 1937 creation Bourrasque, Rodrigo Flores-Roux confesses he was inspired by the idea of reinventing this violent gust of wind, whipping through suddenly, this metaphorical and poetic tempest. A gale of energy and passion, almost sexual or animalic. A fragrance that just had to be potent.
A cyprus composition capturing long-lasting woody notes and crowned with intense floral scents. Then come a thorny Rose, an explosive Osmanthus – an Indian flower elsewhere unknown... Hints of damp earth, recalling the clamour of an oncoming storm. A deeply animalic character, enveloped in leather, leaves an enticing and equally fascinating sillage. Not for the faint of heart.
