The scent of a dreamlike reality

Ganymede. An enigmatic word, a name for a perfume that opens up to imaginary worlds. Perfumer Quentin Bisch and couturier Marc-Antoine Barrois tell fragments of the universe in a few letters that lead into fragrant paths.

Creating an elegant and unexpected harmony around a quartet of tangerine, violet, immortelle and soft suede, the two artist colleagues dreamed of this new planet: Ganymede. Discovered by Galileo in 1610, the rocky satellite of Jupiter is both luminous and covered with saltwater oceans. He got his name from Greek mythology: a young man, Ganymede, was kidnapped by gods who were so mesmerized by his beauty that he was offered immortality.

This time, however, the artists have emancipated themselves from traditional codes to take us in a different direction, towards an aluminous and fluid elegance. The leather notes become softer, gaining lightness and softness in contact with the scent of violets. The tangerine scent brings all its liveliness and acidic essence. The latter gives the scent the tone and a certain verticality from the start. In contrast, the helichrysum forms the counterpoint and elevates the fragrance harmony with its double-sided scent, which is sometimes mineral, sometimes salty. The entire composition plays with contrasts and opposites.

The notes answer each other in a permanent conversation, drawing a new olfactory map on the skin, on the lapel of a cashmere jacket or even right there, next to the buttons of the sleeves, on the wrist. If it could be summed up in a single image, it would be a compass: north for the sparkling vivacity of the tangerine, to which the south responds with the everlasting flower, and to emphasize this olfactory framework, the density of the suede notes in the west would be the subtle and delicate florality of the violet in the east. These are the four directions for a perfumed journey to a new imaginary world and new codes of elegance.
