Histoires de Parfums En Aparte Irreverent, Outrecuidant, Prolixe (2017) {New Fragrances}


French niche brand Histoires de Parfums Est. 2000 is issuing a new collection of unisex perfumes entitled En Aparté (Discreet conversation, in private.), which includes a trio of scents named Irrévérent, Outrecuidant and Prolixe typifying three modes of communication or personal attitudes...

Gérald Ghislain explains his creative aim,

"Like a conversation, perfume is an expression, conveyed at times in the form of a declaration and at other times a secret. There is that which can be said aloud and clearly, and that which can only be expressed in private, with the utmost discretion. Such an intention is featured in the En Aparté collection. A space offering complete freedom to elicit without compromise while coveting secrets and privacy as well."


"Comme dans une conversation, le parfum s'exprime parfois sur le mode de l'affirmation ou sur celui de la confidence ; il y a ce qui peut être dit haut et fort et ce qui ne peut être exprimé qu'à l'écart, en toute discrétion. Tel est le propos mis en exergue dans la collection En aparté ; un espace qui offre toute liberté pour évoquer sans compromission, ce qui est de l'ordre du privé. Irrévérent, Outrecuidant, Prolixe, trois compositions dévoilées dans l'intimité d'Histoires de Parfums."
