Serge Lutens - L'Eau Laine de Verre Eau de Parfum - 50 ml
"Laine de verre (glass wool), is the meeting of two opposites which, nevertheless, are complementary. One is transparent, shattering just as much as a truth, taking everything at face value, from the highest to the lowest degree. On the other hand, the wool. It is knitted, it is made into stitches which run down a singlet; sometimes it scratches. Taken at its word, glass wool is also an insulator."
"This insulation is from something which is felt like danger. Without being able to explain it, I sense it. It arises like the arrival of a domestic dispute between my femininity and my masculinity. Coming off its hinges, it opens its doors to the stifled cry of a madman, or to the relentless exercise of a physician: an eau which is angry, stormy. It provokes the thunderbolt of creation. It vibrates, it is a fear; like this she overcomes it. In itself, if it is mute, the perfume-product has no interest for me. It is a confession which mutually I expect from him and that he wishes from me."
"On this occasion, with Laine de verre, it is the metal which, physically, takes shape within its fragrance. It is not without reason that the image of chrome plated handlebars, attached to the steering rod of a bicycle on which a child leans in order to accelerate and thus brings his nose nearer, has suddenly come over me."
