His website has a gallery with some really beautiful works (here and here my favourites).
A few years ago he spent time in Grasse, and was at that time that he felt something inside urging him toward Perfume and creation. So in addition to jewelry, five fragrances began to shape the collection "Parfums de Pierre Poèmes: Rock Crystal, Amethyst, Black Tourmaline, Jade, Tourquoise.
The first was Rock Crystal, an incense with citrus notes, followed by Amethyst (incense, spices and notes of flowers), Jade (a woody aromatic: tea, star anise, elychrisum, cardamom, with some floral notes) Tourquoise (an “ozonic” incense with seaweed, lotus flower, juniper, honey and ambergris), Black Tourmaline (incense, lot of spices including cumin, coriander and cardamom, and smoky woods).
All his fragrances are created to evoke the symbolism carried by the stones in different eras and latitudes, such as elevation of consciousness (Jade), health and good fortune (turquoise), protection (rock crystal) . And since Olivier thinks the stones’ symbolism is bound with their colours, scents carry also the stones’ colours (Jade, Amethyst and Turquoise being the most unusual and fascinating: intense green the first, beautiful, deep purple the second and a vivid turquoise the third). Inside the bottle, then, are immersed 3 small "pearls" of the stone, so that name, scent, colour and stones vibrate in unison, carrying the same message.
I really like the concept, I must say that it’s intellectually very stimulating. But as usual, if scents were less interesting than their environment I wouldn’t talk about them at all: in this case, therefore, were the fragrances to intrigue me.
Ah, I have not said what a kind individual he is. I met him for the interview, we chatted a while, then the next day I meet him because he presented his fragrance to the SniffaPitti group (the picture above was taken on that occasion, I wrote about it here), so I had two days to observe him and get an idea of the person behind the fragrances. He won me for his gentle ways, he’s a very open person, with a charming shyness and a refined taste (but not at all ostentatious, and I liked it!).
