La douleur exquise


It is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all? Who among us has not experienced the pain of loss mixed with the memory of love, transforming into the paradox of sweet torment?

Les Abstraits La Douleur Exquise (The Exquisite Pain) explores this theme in perfume, placing at its heart a singular rose, the icon of love. Representing love lost, the rose melts like red beeswax into beautifully doleful, bodily, and meditative tributaries of cumin, incense, myrrh, and patchouli.

At once spicy, earthy, dry and fleshy, La Douleur Exquise never abandons the iconic flower of romance and love. Instead, it keeps a fresh, plump rose petal in front of your nose to remind you, like a sunrise after darkest night, that all is not lost. It can always be time to begin — and perhaps learn to love — again.

Like life, perfume constantly flows and evolves from one moment to the next, and yet, there are moments that are indelible…that leave a mark on the soul and memory. Les Abstraits (The Abstract) was born of Eugen’s desire to reflect on the art of life as seen through the world of perfume. In collaboration with master perfumer Antoine Lie, Eugen has created three fragrances that convey the entire range of human emotion, from profound heartache and loss, to the joy of emerging on the other side. Les Abstraits’ complex and emotional perfumes vibrate with life, lingering in your imagination and heart long after they’ve evaporated from your skin.
