We travel to escape the ordinary. And of the many impressions we take away from our journeys, it is the sense of smell that leaves the greatest impact on our memory. Scents hold the power to transport us immediately to a place in time, to recapture a mood...or even to entice us with sensual hints of adventures yet to come. L’Objet presents a collection of aromatic expressions created from natural oils and essences, blended and poured by hand. Experience Parfums de Voyage. The essence of discovery. It was cold in Paris that October day in 1975 when Philippe received a hand-written note from Mischa Barinov of St. Petersburg; an invitation to view a rare, privately held collection of antiquities. He departed by train that very evening. Two days later, he arrived in the study of a mansion on the Griboyedov Canal. Settling into a Louis XIV bergère beside the fireplace, he was enveloped by the blended scents of ancient, leather-bound books, the crackling fire, and the steam of black tea rising from a spectacular samovar. Mischa appeared in the doorway. “Thank you for coming. I think you will find it well worth your travels. But first, tea...” Then, in regard to Philippe’s obvious obsession with the samovar, “Tobrak bronze, circa 1775.” From the time our earliest ancestors tossed dried leaves and herbs onto their communal fires, the blending of incense became a sacred and healing art. Earthy yet mysterious, incense is still treasured today for its ability to enliven our senses, cleanse impurities, and elevate our moods. The Parfums de Voyage collection features Japanese incense, which delivers the purest fragrance possible. Elevate the experience further by aerating and lifting the fragrance through a timeless porcelain amphora.
