HEADSPACE (N.M.) TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED IN THE 1970’S AIMED AT CAPTURING THE SCENT OF A RAW INGREDIENT IN THE VERY SAME PLACE IT IS FOUND AND CAREFULLY RECONSTRUCTING ITS FRAGRANCE. ESPACE MENTAL DE L’IMAGINAIRE. MENTAL SPACE OF THE IMAGINARY.
Pick the exquisite flower of memory. Capture the scent of the unseen. Capture the delicate smell of first times. The perfumer has dreamed of it as the poet did before him, succeeding by dint of determination to capture the elusive, fragile emotion of the moment.
Assisted by science, the most talented perfumers have achieved what seemed impossible: to enter the remote regions of the psyche (headspace) and ignite the trace of a moment of life that nothing will ever erase, a headspace of pure emotion.
The HEADSPACE collection offers a selection of moments of life captured, trapped, encapsulated, out of time, conveying an impactful and poetic imagery, moments of universality named simply by the raw material that transcends them.
The natural raw materials are carefully selected, harvested and processed by hand to preserve all their olfactory qualities, and combined with a ‘Headspace’ extract to create a perfume never before seen in Haute Parfumerie.
If modern perfumery results from the marriage between natural and synthetic raw materials, HEADSPACE grants a generous naturalness to its fragrances seen through the prism of an emblematic, and sometimes unexpected, emblematic,.
The HEADSPACE bottle, created by Jules DINAND, is a life-size replica of the countless vials that litter a perfumer’s office. With a pure and functional design, it is dressed with a minimalist paper label, a white canvas on which to project your imagination. A luxurious black bakelite cover completes the modern silhouette of this object.
The statutory HEADSPACE 100ml bottle is declined in a 30ml “inkwell” version with lines extending those of the cap.
HEADSPACE perfumes are handmade near Grasse in France and all components are sourced and manufactured in France.
Reinventing life as it should be by capturing the smells that surround us is the goal of this analysis technology invented by the Swiss chemist roman kaiser in the 1970s. Initially, the idea was to trap the volatile molecules of rare plants without having to pick them, and to reconstitute them.
Countless plant species cannot be exploited by classical techniques (distillation, solvent extraction…), the ‘Headspace’ _ capture, analysis and reconstitution of the air surrounding a living or inert object _ is a major innovation and a symbol of the eternal pursuit of the perfumer. The field of possibilities is infinite and the perfumer-demiurge can dream that the whole world could one day be put in scents, and soon in perfume.
