In the ancient times, priests used to conceive perfumes as the sweat of the gods, loaded with their power, desires, wisdom and rage. Because these gods could not appear directly to humans, they used to turn themselves into symbolic animals. Les Eaux de Peau trilogy is the contemporary incarnation of the legendary liquids beading on the skin of these mythological animals. Created by perfumer Carine Bouin, Belle Bête is a wild embrace, an encounter of softness and animalistic vigour between a beautiful beast and its prey. A feline beauty emanates from its claws in a spiced and powdery olfactory attack before enveloping the wearer with its soft fur and animal heat. Top notes of iris accord, chili accord, rhubarb accord and salvia sclarea give way to a heart of Atlas cedar, cashmeran, Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver essence, coumarin and coffee. A dry-down of castoreum, civet, costus, a suede accord, musk and ambrettolide rounds out this Animalic-Powdery-Spicy unisex perfume, the very essence of sensual pleasure.
