The Volutes fragrance conjures up the memory of young Yves’ 1930s ocean liner voyage, to the Orient, from Marseille to Saigon. Imagine him on the bridge, leaning with his elbows on the bulwarks, dreaming as he watches the wakes' white spumes dance and meld with the smoke of a tomboy's cigarette. Aside from the ports of call, the traveler's companions are the waves, the foam, the clouds and the smoke wafting up from the vessel’s chimneys. It's the ever so unique scent of tobacco combined with the captivating shape that have given this fragrance its essence, its name.
The voyage of your dreams, on board a liner from Marseille to Saigon.
A long haul crossing, stopping off at a number of places with magical names, all redolent of adventure and spice.
The charm of life on board ship, where time does not exist.
The labyrinth of polished passageways and the paneled walls of the lounges, the enigmatic elegant women leaning on the rail on top deck, indulging in the pleasure of "Khedive" cigarettes. A smell forever imprinted on the memory: Volutes.
