“On the shores of the Aegean Sea, you’ll need to be careful when approaching the steep paths that lead to this set of scorching rocky beaches and rockrose-lined mineral alcoves, conducive to embraces… Limanakia”.
Pierre Guillaume wished to evoke the animality of mingling skins and the perfume of the cistus bushes, by associating it with the mineral smell of the sea winds caressing the burning rocks.
A cocktail of salicylates and cumin evokes a rocky beach, beaten by the waves and the sun. Its minerality is refreshed by the aromatic accents of sagebrush.
A white floral heart oscillating between jasmine, lily of the valley and tiare is colored by the spicy facets of immortelle and the woody fractions of patchouli.
The vegetal animality of labdanum ambrosia warms up this mineral freshness with its leathery imprint, like a wind laden with sea spray rushing through the Mediterranean rockrose bushes.
Plunging into the Aegean Sea, not far from Athens, the rocky beaches of Limanakia.
