Influenced by the compelling power of the Sacral Chakra, the energy located beneath the navel that unlocks sensuality and eros, Le Deuxieme Parfum is neither conventionally feminine or masculine. A warm and carnal elixir meant to elicit desire in the wearer and in those she or he encounters, Le Deuxieme Parfum is not merely a fragrance, but an aphrodisiac. An intimate woody floral scent, heady notes of ylang ylang meld with precious sandalwood and resinous labdanum to embody an androgynous sensuality, registering pulsating attraction and enflamed emotion in the olfactory dimension.
Pauline Rochas combines her rich heritage of French fine perfumery with ancient Eastern wisdom, bridging the gap between modernity and tradition. For her, fragrance is the essential reflection, expression and extension of self. Mythology becomes modern with organics, artisanship and minimalist formulas. As a child, Pauline has never forgotten these words: “Only after the last tree has beencut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Then you will find that money cannot be eaten.” That is why an ecological approach is the only way forward. The Seven Collection is a layered fragrant journey that awakens the spirit one chakra at a time.
