NO 11, PARFUM - ANIMAL NOTES, ROSE & PINK PEPPER
Cool, Sweet, & Spicy
The Greek Goddess, Aphrodite, embodied love, pleasure and beauty. Pierre de Velay Number 11 is as if her spirit were bottled and treasured.
A Chypré unlike any other experienced before, Number 11 is a total re-imagining of this classical perfumery style. Reminiscent of Aphrodite’s birthplace amongst the mosses and woods by the ocean of Paphos, this traditional base is given a invigorating new dimension, as an irresistible note of Pink Pepper lends a tingling heat to add to the pleasure whilst a central note of Rose, a material which lends to the composition a beautiful and sensual tone.
These two materials flirt in perfect harmony, balancing sweet with dry, warm with cool, and masculine with feminine, all whilst a tart note of Rhubarb whispers of originality and intrigue.
Those who tend to favour the Chypré accord typically appreciate a tailored and disciplined perfume – one of refined glamour opposed to the opulent world of the Ambrée. And yet, Number 11 twists this on its head to create something so utterly contemporary that it can’t help but to turns heads.
Much like the duality of the number 11 itself, this is a paradoxical perfume – it is one thing, and yet it is another. But what it certainly isn’t is shy.
