Histoires de Parfums This Is Not A Blue Bottle 1.6 EDP 15ml VapoRegular price £35.00 Save £-35.00
This is not a blue bottle derives its name from ‘The Treachery of Images’, a famous work in the 1920s by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. The painting shows the image of a pipe above a declaration which reads, translated from French, as “This is not a pipe”. This is not a blue bottle is the allegory of a fragrant big bang, a journey from the abstract to the most fiery of emotions in the infinite realm of blue. 1.6 continues the series by evoking the most ineffable and powerful energy of all, love. Inspired by “The Earth is blue like an orange”, a love poem written by Paul Eluard to Gala (who would become Salvador Dali’s lover), 1.6 takes a surrealistic approach to paint the picture of joyous love. It is a perfume for uplifting passions that enlighten the day, that shake up your senses and to open a world of possibilities. A striking opening of sweet orange, grapefruit and yuzu gives way to a heart of orange blossom, lotus and neroli before a dry-down of vanilla, white musks and vetiver rounds out this unisex Citrus-Floral eau de parfum.
