The BELLE BÊTE has been inspired by the Kiss of the Sphinx by Franz von Stuck (dark romanticism).
As the first scent in the line, BELLE BÊTE has been composed by Carine Bouin of Givaudan. The new creation has its roots in old myths of human transformation into notcurnal beasts.
Those stories have been perfectly reflected in the fragrance – BELLE BÊTE is a wild and passionate encounter between the beautiful beast and its loving prey. A feline beauty emanates from its claws in a spiced and powdery olfactory attack before enveloping the human body in its soft fur and animal heat. The very essence of pleasure, a mix between softness and animalistic vigour. A perfume between tension and sensuality.
