Poudrextase is a subtle affair composed around notes of the sweet natural secretions of clean skin. A perfume of the personal, an intimate comfort.

Folded into it is an exquisite arrangement of cosmetic aspects – delicately hesperidic rice powder, sensual dried rose - and soft, carnal and animal odors which are the very characteristic of living skin and define the inimitable imprint of a living being.

A perfume created by Marlou joins itself to the body’s own olfactory signaling. It creates a new sensuality and describes an olfactive personality.

We work 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.

L’Animal sauvage is the first perfume from Marlou.

Once released from the bottle, fiery notes roar forth through a heady blossom haze - orange blossom, violet - before coming to rest, purring and subdued, wrapped in a pelt of cream and musk, upon the skin – sandalwood, patchouli, civet, musk.

The world of perfume is set apart, as it can be entered by one sense only; the sense of smell.

Serene, its orbit lifts it above the clamour of words and images, neither ever quite attaining the emotions a scent can arouse.











A subtly metallic, peppered beginning gives way to a more resinous heart and powder accents. Elegant, quaint, unnerving, the perfume settles down and sinks into the skin, becomes one with and gives voice to the flesh, warms the pores, exudes once more. A waxen, oily appearance emerges, softly saline.

Then, sweeping in from scorching sands, drops of sun spring forth to wither the everlasting desires, those which cling to the secretions of the flesh in exultation, in the throes of passion aroused by this fleeting and mortal existence.

Pink Peppercorn. Cumin. Incense. Ylang. Dune plants. Castoreum. Costus.

Luxury in the world of perfume is bringing together elements from all four corners of the globe. Luxury is allowing oneself this caprice in service to the emotions.
The burden being Nature’s to carry, this must remain an exception. All frill and ornamentation seems to us superfluous.










Hands-on in every respect, we make the machines to fabricate our own packaging and streamline our deliveries. By their nature, these unique techniques create a sober and pragmatic aesthetic, which in turn becomes our own.

Our packaging has been conceived with sensible and local production in mind. Wherever possible, it is made from degradable or recyclable materials.

To establish an artisan craft, a small production, is to take the pluralist path and share the marketplace with other small enterprises.

It is to remain as close to one’s creations as possible, to avoid the uniformity and profitability that a larger structure can impose.

We will never speak of exclusivity. Because to exclude, to distance some as a way of standing out, adds no real value to a creation.

We stand out by including new ideas, by opening the world of perfume to new uses. The value that characterizes our creations is sincerity.










INFORMATION FOR USERS

Through our craft, we wish to examine the human body in its olfactory self-expression, its cultural image. We also take pleasure in imagining new functions for perfume; identity affirmation, erotic pursuit, suffusion of objects, talisman, store of reminiscences. Our aim is to stir the senses, to wake emotions.

This boundless research - whose sole impulse is the drive to create - may disconcert a nose grown accustomed to a more conventional market; a market characterized by the predominance of targeted clientèle and olfactory efficiency.
