Thierry Wasser’s “Noir-Lumière” for Guerlain: Néroli Outrenoir
Guerlain‘s official perfumer since 2005, Thierry Wasser proposed in 2016 to expand the beautiful range of the Art and Material collection by enhancing his favorite scented ingredient, orange blossom.
The perfumer may compose beautiful fragrances such as the iconic La Petite Robe Noire for Guerlain, but he is nonetheless forced to limit his creativity to obvious commercial needs. Cost constraints which fortunately will not apply to the Art and Material collection; thus each creator can give free rein to his fertile imagination.
Thus, with regard to Néroli Outrenoir, Thierry Wasser wished to highlight neroli in all its facets, from its deep luminosity to its more mysterious voluptuous accords, using the most beautiful raw materials at its disposal. As a result, Néroli Outrenoir amazes with its clear and obscure accords any woman seeking to approach them. Jewel of creativity, Néroli Outrenoir shows us much more than the facets of orange blossom, the many faces of Thierry Wasser’s creativity!
“[…] If he attaches himself to obvious elegance, to unexplained grace, without premeditation , Thierry Wasser thrives in the opposite, the wink, the pirouette, a score that he plays wonderfully. »Guerlain on Néroli Outrenoir.
