The artist, living between shadow and light, is a mortal creature. Halfway between the religious and the revolutionary, with an unquenched thirst for eternity, Mortel is a revolutionary drive that combines virile force and natural harmonies. A fatal attraction. “A winter’s night. A heavy metal door opens on a huge room. A man appears in the distance; intense heat and light are pulsing from a forge. Light is reflected on the skin and gestures of this man, who is engaged in a rite: standing in front of the blaze, his eyes seek a form buried in the magma before he can recreate it in the open air. The furnace throws giant, moving shadows. In the midst of his activity, sleep finally overcomes the fiery eyes of the artist-craftsman.” - Yann Vasnier.
In harmony with the brand’s stylistic approach, Pauline Deltour managed to create a perfume bottle at the edge of the world of candles; its aesthetic codes and materials belong to Cire Trudon’s world.
The 100ml perfume bottle resembles the design of Cire Trudon’s scented candles. Created by Pauline Deltour, the rippled-glass cap evokes the elegant silhouette of La Promeneuse. In a pine-green hue, the top counterbalances the transparent bottle, inspired by blocks of crystal.
“The bottle sits perfectly in the hand and is pleasant to the eye. I perfected its dimensions to underline the domed neck on top of which the rippled-glass cap sits. Elegantly placed in a cut-out window, the label seems to be framed”, says Pauline Deltour.
Praise to Glass
Designed by Pauline Deltour and elaborated by Brosse Glassworks,
the rippled cap is made out of glass, a material which is dear to Maison Trudon.
