Secretions Magnifiques EDP Spray, 50ml
Out of stock
Like blood, sweat, sperm, saliva, Sécrétions Magnifiques is as real as an olfactory coitus that sends one into raptures, to the pinnacle of sensual pleasure, that extraordinary and unique moment when desire triumphs over reason. Masculine tenseness frees a rush of adrenaline in a cascade of high-pitched aldehydic notes. The sensation of freshness is gripping. Then the fragrance reveals a metallic side, precise and as sharp as unappeased desire. We are on a razor-edge... skin and sweat mingle, and tastes of musk and sandalwood. The slightly salty marine effect stirs, arouses, and sets your mouth watering. Tongues and sexes find one another, pleasure explodes and all goes wild. Confusion reigns supreme. A subversive, disturbing perfume. It’s love or hate at first sight. Sensuous jousting is rarely satisfied with half-measures... In between Don Juan and the woman who offers herself, arms are laid down... Who will be the first to surrender?
With almost a cult of love or hate, Sécrétions Magnifiques shook up the perfume world when it was launched, and it still does. A work of conceptual perfumery designed to speak to all the senses at once. One rule: attraction and repulsion.
Eau de Parfum
We couldn't think of one.
Made in France
Fragrances should make us think - in fact, shouldn’t they make us feel? Sécrétions Magnifiques is a conceptual fragrance, and speaks a message as to the nature of perfumery. Can we bracket the hedonistic, pleasure-driven aspects of ourselves and truly be objective about scent? Here Sécrétions Magnifiques asks: what do we accept as clean and sacred, and what do we reject as dirty and profane? ... making the boundary line blurry in the process. Can we appreciate the artistic realism of a scent like this, or are we too wrapped up in notions of purity, freshness, and cleanliness? This is the manifest power of fragrance - it excites, disgusts, and can subvert the norm. This is Etat Libre d'Orange at their worst, which, is indeed their best.
