Originally created upon a friend’s request in 2002, Sailors intends to represent both sensuality and friendship around the globe. A friendship that shall go beyond the political confrontations of the flags on their ships… Not to mention, most find these friendly sea voyagers quite sexy.
This is a perfumer’s remix of Déclaration (Jean Claude Ellena/Cartier Parfums 1998), just as a DJ creates a remix from an existing song, making it more dramatic and dance-y.
In Sailors, bass (base) notes were added with deeper sexier tones: Cashmeran®, a touch of Seaweed, Cinnamon Leaves and Clove…along with resounding notes: Javanol® and Ambrox® Super big time, natural Indian Sandalwood big time, Wolfwood®, Helvetolide®…
Some further dancing freshness was also mixed in: five Grapefruit notes, Mandarin, Lemon, molecular Violet Leaves, iso-Cyclocitral...
As per THE ZOO® Code of Ethics, if Cartier Parfums, Symrise or Jean-Claude Ellena would like to be compensated with a royalty agreement, they will gladly abide, counting on everyone to act fairly. They intend to show a new way of respecting creators as well as fighting blunt plagiarism which is entrenched and rewarded in perfumery. For instance, as a starting point, we could learn from the music arena, and go beyond to avoid its issues. Let’s be clever and legally creative.
