THE OLFACTIVE GESSO

To make a statement, all you need is a white T-shirt. To make an impression, all you need is Monoscent G. Unlike a perfume, Monoscent G can be worn on its own or as a base layer to other perfumes.

The Garden of Wonders

There is nothing more mysterious and at the same time explicit than a perfume. On the one hand, its invisibility lays it open to secret and magical interpretations that try to lock its volatile nature up in a frozen image. On the other, its olfactory appeal plays on the sense most closely linked to our remembrance of the past, to ancestral memories that activate our synapses in a subjective but universal way, permitting very precise leaps in time. These impressions lie at the heart of the project called The Garden of Wonders, coordinated by Ferruccio Laviani for the foundation BE OPEN and presented at the Orto Botanico di Brera in Milan from April 13 to May 24.

The world of fragrance can be Old World and clubby, so it didn’t appear much of a stretch when Chanel appointed Olivier Polge, right, to succeed his father, Jacques Polge, the house’s fragrance creator since 1978 and the man behind hits like Coco Mademoiselle, Chance and Allure.

数年前、オリヴィエ・ポルジュがいずれ父の後を継いでシャネルの専属調香師になる可能性を仄めかしたが(記事参照)、その時はそうなったとしても10年先のことだろうと思っていた。先日7月5日にシャネルは、オリヴィエ・ポルジュを次期専属調香師として迎えることを発表した。話し合いから発表までに要した時間が3週間という驚くべき早さに、シャネルの機密保持への周到な配慮を伺うことができる。若干38歳にしてシャネルの看板を背負うに充分な力量と才能を持った調香師であることは疑いもないが、まだ5年ぐらいはIFFにいるだろうと思っていたから思わぬ早さの就任である。

シャネルがどのようなオリヴィエ・ポルジュの公式ポートレートを用意するのかが楽しみであるが、このオリヴィエ・ポルジュの写真は、フォトグラファーの渡邉肇氏(ホームページ)が7年前に撮影したものだ。写真が苦手なオリヴィエ・ポルジュが唯一気に入っているものであるらしい。以下は、この写真に関するオリヴィエ・ポルジュのコメントである。

I never like photographs of myself. They are often a bit too “cosmetic.” It feels like someone is trying to make me look like a movie star, and I am afraid I can’t live up to that. There’s nothing artificial about this one though, so that’s good. I look a bit serious, don’t I? I get tired of seeing people smiling all the time in photographs… If I had been able to choose, I would have stood further away from the camera, not right in front of it, with my hand in front so that I fade into the background…
