Discover the secret scents in WIEN - 5 perfume pages, amazing illustrations and several surprises for you. Octavian, Gaïa and Sylvaine in a scented interview by Alexandra Grünwald for WIENERIN.
OCTAVIAN: "A classic perfume is instantly recognizable, it has no age, it has a perfect harmony. It has unity and variety with a profound and unforgettable effect. Experiencing a classic perfume is like discovering a scent created by Nature - the first time when you smell a champaca flower in bloom. When a perfumer creates a classic fragrance he creates a "natural" scent with an "organic" development, if we consider this XIXth century design concept. "Classic" is the way Nature conceives the perfumes. A classic is an unforgettable presence. It changes without changing, versatile when fashion changes through decades. It has a "je ne sais quoi". There are more and more examples of good perfumes. You can experience Iris Poudre (Fr.Malle), Opardu (Puredistance), Infusion d'Iris Absolu (Prada), all with an orris theme, and, of course, Diorling (Dior), MUST (Cartier, the black version) and the original extract version of Après l'Ondée (Guerlain)."
Of course, there are many other beautiful secrets, the original interview in English is very long.
