Legend has it that an apple from a tree fell on Newton’s head – and thus, the theory of universal gravitation was born. But let’s reimagine. Instead of an apple, an enormous, fully scented, fleshy Rose met with by sweet Lychee, deep Akigalawood and earthy patchouli for a new scented path, beyond light and gravity.

FULL DESCRIPTION

EXPERIMENTUM CRUCIS Open a new scented path, beyond light and gravity Newton, excuse us!

Legend has it that an apple from a tree fell on Newton’s head – and thus, the theory of universal gravitation was born. But then let’s imagine a different scene – Newton, asleep under a rose bush. And instead of an apple, a flower falls, an enormous rose, a fully scented, fleshy rose. Would he have felt it? Would he have plunged his face into the heart of the flower? And what would this mean for his theory?

This scent: A chypre! And a very precise and clear-cut formula, like something that falls on you, sudden and direct. And never leaves you. A trail of scent that holds on. Akigalawood and patchouli for a honeyed rose.

Newton, excuse us! Your Crucial Experience showed us that colors are not characteristics of objects but properties of light. We now know, thanks to you, that white light is a mixture of rays with the nuances of the rainbow. You also showed us that just because an object IS red does not mean that we see it as red. If it appears red to our visual perception, this is because, when illuminated with a white light source (for example, sunlight), its surface absorbs all the colored light rays that compose it, EXCEPT the reds.

So forgive us for taking inspiration from your Experimentum Crucis! You have been the inspiration and the source of criticism for so many. And as your theory has changed our vision of the world, we have tried to create a fragrance that will change the world.

Amazing fragrance

I bought the discovery set and there were so many fragrances to choose from. I had to make a hard choice to narrow it down to only one. Experimentum Crusis was the winner. Love how long stays in my skin and how each notes notes can be smelled.

I first got to experience Experimentum Crucis as part of the Etat sampler pack. Needless to say it stood out from the crowd because now I am a happy owner of a full bottle. I was intrigued by the name and the back story but skeptical that I would like it as I'm more of an Oriental and Gourmand enthusiast. But wow, it's bold and stunning and I love it for everything I thought I would hate it for - the heady rose and jasmine, the surprising, peppery bite of cumin. A new signature along with my Angel and Angel Muse.
