The Lobster is based on the 2015 absurdist dystopian comedy-drama by Yorgos Lanthimos. The story is set in a dystopian future. Single people are sent to a hotel where they must find a partner in 45 days or get turned into a wild animal of their choice. David's wife has just left him, after 11 years of marriage, and he is sent the hotel. His chosen animal, should he not find a partner, is a lobster.
The cinematography inspired Mark Buxton to render a scenery, landscape and feeling of a couple in a forest. A location where two people are restricted to love, yet fall in love. In the coldness; wind, damp wood, lake and forrest leaves they find warmth. In the danger and darkness; the animal and bloody undertones they find comfort and light.
This is a fragrance that is ultimately herbal, green, wet, dark, animal and woody, and twisted with a bouquet of wild flowers to represent the society they left, the new one they found and will soon leave again.
Watch the perfume:
society resorts, couples only, luxury turned destitute, civilized turned primitive, the hunter becomes the prey, escaped to the wild, camouflage is the new suit, anti is the new sex, in the forest, chasing down her rabbit hole, digging a grave, love is blind
or in other words:
green notes, lily of the valley, cypriol, leafy notes, cold water, cedarwood, myrrh, arnica, fenugreek, animal nots, smell of humus, moss
