“The sea is the place where a fisherman earns his living. A rippling field where, instead of waving heads of rice or wheat, the white and formless harvest of waves is forever swaying above the unrelieved blueness of a sensitive and shifting soil.”
Une Île pluvieuse is inspired by Yukio Mishima’s 1950s novella The Sound of Waves (Shiosai). It tells is a timeless story of first love, of Shinji, a young fisherman and Hatsue, the beautiful daughter of the wealthiest man in the village.
The perfume conveys the mystique of a lovers’ tryst down a pathway drenched in rain, veiled in mist, scented by the sea spray, and bejewelled by the forest flora, on a faraway island in Japan.
