A perfume created by Marlou joins itself to the body’s own olfactory signaling. It creates a new sensuality and describes an olfactive personality. Marlou works with notes described as animal. In their proximity to the natural odours of the skin, these beckon towards an intimacy, a primal bond with oneself and with others.
“I created Marlou so that, from an olfactory perspective, the body could take its place in society. This implies the acceptance and even ownership of faults, of imperfections inherent to that living object which is never wholly clean. Marlou is a perfumery which intertwines with the body’s presence, embraces its flaws and creates it a new olfactory personality. This work is based around animal notes that blur an individual’s olfactory appearance, emanating trails of illusion. The body speaks, arousing the senses, sparking dialogue.”
