The making of Angel’s Dust
While working on Angel’s Dust, I was studying my way into an innocent, light-as-a-feather feminine touch but at the same time seducing, daring and corrupt. The vintage, old-style twist was not voluntary but a necessary consequence of my idea of a femininity of past times, where women had a wooden boudoir and spent hours to put powder and other beauty secrets on their face and body, and didn’t care to affirm themselves through a career but would exert their power through Beauty and Seduction. Then I softened the powdery-iris-rose part by adding a mixture of resins, representing a dirty experienced sensuality.
Some movies and books probably gave some inspiration to me. Les Liaisons Dangereuses, for instance, represented exactly the sophisticated and corrupted atmosphere I had in mind! A beautiful memory I had is the Marie Antoniette in the Coppola’s movie. I obviously like Rococo, but what I like specifically in that movie is the femininity she represents: shoes, sins, libertinage, cakes, and absolute mindlessness, without any guiltiness.
Many have compared Angel’s Dust to some Guerlain mythological scents (Luca Turin mentioned Guet-Apens/Attrape Coeurs). I am honoured of such a comparison, but I couldn’t even think of the possibility of making something so perfect.
