MERCURY by ANTOINE LIE
Mirroring in a dream
“My inspiration comes from the fact Mercury is a fluid element, not a solid. I wanted to give the impression of a shiny and bright fluidity with metallic inflections, but very clean ones… It had to be a fragrance with a strong impact because Mercury for me is dynamic and evokes modernity and technology. I’ve played with a metal effect twisted with a clean, technological and dynamic aspect in order to translate my idea of Mercury in an odor. For the metal effect I’ve created an oxide accord, while a mix of aldehydes, rhubarb and mandarin reproduce the clean dynamic and technological character. The dry-down is woody with notes of cedar wood and sandalwood.” Antoine Lie.
Irrepressible and unusual, it is simultaneously metallic and dynamic. It is shimmering, silvery and startling: a combination of neon lights, shifting transparencies and installations of steel. It is like a mirror that magnifies and folds reality. It hovers perilously in the air with its acrobatic oscillations.
