"Plain tragedy of existence: drawn on notes of violette leaf and lily of the valley and grounded by clearwood and incense pyrogenee. The innocent moment of recognition arrives both too soon and too late, producing a feeling of being out of time in the sense of being late but also out of sync or out of tempo. The realization of this vertiginous experience of our present moment of loss and being lost appears to be looming when it is already too late." Mark Buxton
This perfume is inspired by Lars von Trier's film Melancholia (2011), about two sisters.
On the night of her wedding, Justine is struggling to be happy even though it should be the happiest day of her life. It was an extravagant wedding paid for by her sister and brother-in-law who are trying to keep the bride and all the guests in line. Meanwhile, Melancholia, a blue planet, is hurtling towards the Earth. Claire, Justine's sister, is struggling to maintain composure with fear of the impending disaster.
