Perfumer -Ilyas Ermenidis
It was a vacation trip in search of peace and quiet on the Greek Island of Hydra for Ilias.
A fragrance that offers simplicity, peace, tranquillity and beauty, opening with the fresh fruit that depict the paradisiacal white island. The warm air, and the bright sun that carry the distinctive jasmine and hyacinth which is rounded with the simplistic strength of white musk.
Contes de Parfums is a very unique, luxurious brand of individual fine fragrances. Each fragrance with a very personal and emotive story behind its existence. A very captivating story, portraying a specific moment in life. Despite being personal, the exceptional perfumers behind these stories decided that they would now like to share this intimate moment directly with you… but a story not told by words. These highly gifted artists will relate their incredible private moments using the richly descriptive and exquisitely sensory language of perfume.
The project was born out of the need to create a unique platform where perfumers, often in anonymity, can express first-hand experiences through their olfactory talent, turning their creations into authentic works of art, including their signature.
“The perfume has been imagined, composed and signed in full freedom by the perfumer, who has combined different ingredients to build it.
Without a doubt, this act of composition is an art, a product created by the human being, an act of craftsmanship, originality, communication and aesthetics, through a trade with many centuries of history»
