Majda Bekkali- Mon Nom est Rouge

 

Just having watched “The New Pope” and still being under the spell of Bigazzi’s flawless cinematography, today I felt the need for the right olfactory set of lenses to watch the world through.

The new pope

Enter Mon Nom est Rouge: same as with Biggazzi’s images, you can freeze-frame this fragrance’s development at any second – and it’s still a picture-perfect example of a perfectly composed, bathed in the right kind of all-natural light, bright focus on the main player – intricate but never too much – artistic type of wizardry. And it punctuates, with red, the whole tender love affair between incense and spices.

A note from the brand:

“I am on the petals of roses and on the wounds of war.

My name is red.

I am scarlet or carmine. I embody desire, passion, seduction and strength.

I reveal myself and catch the eye.

But what does being a colour really mean?

If you had to describe me to a person blind from birth, what would you say?

Well, you see, I am primarily a feeling.

If I were a fabric, I would be velvet.

If I were a flavour, I would fill the mouth with a taste of flesh and blood.

And if I were a perfume?

I would be both powerful and enveloping, vivid, scandalous and enchanting; I would be reassuring and narcotic, majestic and hypnotic.
