Beyond the Horizon
CUIR CELESTE is inspired by the iconic garment adorned daily by French photographer Mathieu César, a vintage B3 bomber jacket reworked for him by a Parisian craftsman. Under the auspices of EX NIHILO, he asked perfumer Quentin Bisch to create a scent evoking the protection of a Leather armor tinged with a pure Haute Couture sophistication. It mixes Leather notes with Ambrette, addictive Violet leaves, Patchouli and Musk as olfactory links between the past and the future.
Promising, gifted, self-taught, Mathieu Cèsar is one of the new emerging talents of contemporary photography. Recognizable for his timeless touch, his subtle black and white has seduced the most prestigious magazines. He regularly works with international celebrities and creative high profiles.
High Perfumery was the next playground to express his curiosity for creation in all its forms. Driven by the same passions and the quest for excellence, EX NIHILO founders, Olivier Royère, Sylvie Loday and Benoît Verdier, invited Mathieu to imagine the fragrance of his dreams.
For the occasion, they asked another rising French talent, perfumer Quentin Bisch, author of Fleur Narcotique, to collaborate on the project. The result of this union: a quintessential scent that reinvents the olfactory codes of Leather with a very Haute Couture twist.
