This is Not a Blue Collection Collection gets its name from the Treachery of Images, a famous artwork from the 1920s by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. The painting shows the image of a pipe above a declaration, which reads, “This is not a pipe”. Histoires de Parfums takes inspiration from this art, and in this collection explores the line where things go from void to existence, there is a profound depth of possibility; and of course the infinite realm of blue.
This perfume has the brightness, the spark of a gentle touch on the skin as it relates to the energy of Yang and the Sun. 1/.5 is the kind of scent that draws you to someone, the undeniable pheromone-like skin scent that brings bodies closer together. This is a perfume composed exclusively of synthetic molecules and inspired by the universal principle of Yang. Strong and bold, yet subtle at the same time; the perfect contradiction. The feeling of sensuality and smoothness - a fragrance that has a powerful effect rather than a loudness; it is almost imaginary. Solar Ozonic strength encounters the subtle transparency of the Aldehyde attraction to attain a fresh Minerality.
Mix & Match This is Not a Blue Bottle’s Yin & Yang, 1/.4 and 1/.5 - they are interdependent, however mutually enhance each another. Much as the sun work in synergy with the moon, so too do these fragrances. Opposite yet perfectly complimentary. Together they form an olfactive synergy, a circulation of a breath, which connects natural to synthetic raw ingredients seamlessly.
