Spotlight on Liquides Imaginaires Succus

Yet another fragrance house I hear you ask? Well, David Frossard and Philippe Di Méo, the founders of Liquides Imaginaires, have created a luxurious unisex range which they believe stands out from the crowd. 

The perfumes have been created to translate the magic and mystery of scent so they play on your senses  transporting you, the boys say, from “the material world into the immaterial.” Over the few years that the house has been going, it has built up a cult following. 

Renowned for releasing trilogies of fragrances, the house has recently released a new one, Les Eaux Arborantes, which pays homage to the wild, trees, plant and animal life. My favourite one is Succus. Think mandarins and  rhubarb spiced up with black pepper and ginger underpinned with a woody base.

Fragrance is personal and whatever a company says is the motivation and story behind the scent, it ultimately boils down to whether you like it or not.

These fragrances are different and edgy so it is worth taking a look at  this brand (available at Selfridges and Harrods Salon de Parfums from £150). You should find one that appeals.
