This fragrance is an aromatic translation of a 2022 interview with the consummate writer and poet OCEAN VUONG for FOLIE À PLUSIEURS — SILHOUETTES.
From the lens of a perfumer, Silhouettes explores the olfactive nature of an artist’s work—whether painting, sculpture, photo, film, music, or performance. In a series of interviews, essays, art reviews, and artist profiles, here perfumers translate the world of art into scent.
