Jupiter’s immense satellite has not only inspired our perfume’s name, but is also known to be full of craters and to have an underground ocean vaster than all of earth’s oceans put together. The perfume’s creators, Marc-Antoine Barrois and Quentin Bisch, have imagined it here in a world with an atmosphere brimming with aromatics that it becomes combustible: its sky is gleaming with the sour spike of mandarin and the holy fumaroles of incense and myrrh. It’s a planet covered with warm velvet dunes where the spicy and caramelized everlasting flower is preponderant. The fiery heart of this fragrance reminds us that the gods gave Ganymede eternal life so that his beauty would never fade. Is it the smoldering skin hidden underneath the wild leather? This precious perfume extract is as much a sophisticated perfume as a carnal one.
Ganymede EXTRAIT unfolds in its dizzying trail the seduction of great Classics.
The sound of the waves from far away. The wind is sweeping a field of everlasting flowers. The sun takes out its right and heats the spicy, almost syrupy scent of these yellow flowers. The waves are caressing the dune.
The wind picks up the sand into warm, leathery, heady gusts- incense, myrrhe? Grains of sand are twirling, incandescent. The rock is flushing, the Akigalawood and Mandarin bring minerals and freshness. The air becomes… captivating.
The fragrances of the Maison MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS are the result of the meeting of two young designers. One is a couturier, the other a perfumer. Their childhood memories brought them together. Remembering captivating smells; of the leather from an elegant attaché case or an immaculate desk blotter; of the distinct smells of wood during the regular gatherring, or of fuel to warm the family home. The artistic skills of the former and the olfactory talent of the latter together sparked the magic of these beautiful fragrances.
