Baba Yaga refers to the witch of the Russian fairy tales ; all the children know about her and dread to meet her. She lives in a dark forest and reigns over all the wild animals; she travels on a mortar and wipes her tracks with a broom. A storm with terrifying winds and whistles announce that she is coming while the trees crack in pain and the leaves fly all over.
But to us, Baba Yaga means something else - it is this dark force, which embodies all our fears, everything that holds us back, hurts us and consumes us. That force keeps building up, deep inside us and one day we will have to confront it, fight with it and be victorious so that we can live our life and not merely survive. This fragrance speaks of that fight.
The Eau de Toilette is based on the Baba Yaga Eau de Parfum. We have invigorated the dynamic freshness of the citruses and the spiky bites of the spices; the citruses and the spices lead the way while the lightness of the fragrance is maintained and the woody and leather notes give it depth and sophistication. The Eau de Toilette is dedicated to men who want a fragrance giving them the feel of freshness and energy after they have shaved; a reviving and energizing perfume mist which envelops them; a touch of elegance and refinement.
The porcelain sculpture bottle was created with artist Joëlle Fèvre as a visual and tactile representation of the perfume. Joëlle starts from a block of clay, which she sculpts to obtain light effects and texture effects. She does not use glaze because she likes to work with the organic texture and the translucency of porcelain biscuit. The aspect of the sculpture-bottle changes depending on where it stands and how it is touched by light.
The glass bottle containing the perfume is locked in the porcelain sculpture; its metal cap reflects the top of the sculpture thereby becoming an integral part of the porcelain sculpture. The pump can be easily unscrewed for a quick refill and without loss of perfume.
