STEPHANE HUMBERT LUCAS “SOLEIL DE JEDDAH”
“A Touch of Gold”
Stephane Humbert Lucas, got inspired from his different trips to the Middle East and Jeddah will remain one his best memories.
Struck by the intensity of the light of the sun there, it will take him three years to formulate and express this divine light, as shiny and precious as gold.
As a painter, SHL aims to give a rich texture to his creation and plays here with the exceptional quality of the ingredients and their high concentration to reveal the different facets of the fragrance.
A unique perfume that feels as bright as the sun it was named after.
A sparkling opening of juicy Italian Citrus, sweetness of Osmanthus and Madagascar Vanilla contrast with the deep notes of Russian Leather and Amber.
This fragrance gives a sublime sensation of a glowing aura with its powerful and sophisticated sillage.
A must have for the oriental fragrances lovers.
ARTISTIC HOUSE OF LUXURY FRAGRANCE
Stephane Humbert Lucas Paris is a field of expression for its creator and a way for him to free his artistic sensibility and his overflowing creativity where no marketing concessions are welcome.
Each creation starts with a blank canvas where touches of colour, musical notes, poetry and images will be progressively inscribed.
The permanent inspiration drawn from painting, literature and music sets the tone and imposes a selection of the most beautiful raw materials of fine perfumery.
The process can finally begin. Both the harmony and the roughness are beautifully confronted as a result of the creator’s need to place perfumery as a major art.
SYNESTHETE PARISIAN PERFUMER
Painter and poet, Stéphane Humbert Lucas studied painting in the South of France with a Flemish master and specialised in the tempera technique where he was obsessed with the combination of pigments and their texture.
Convinced that every colour had a scent, he discovered his synethesia, a perceptual phenomenon in which the stimulation of his sight simultaneously triggers his sense of smell at the same time.
Mixing colours was then a way to master new and unique scents.
“I don’t invent scents, I rearrange them and invite them to combine,
I’m a matchmaker, a couturier of the invisible.
Yet, I ‘see’ my fragrances, each material, each accord vibrate with colours
and sometimes these colours emit a sound.
I don’t invent smell, like I neither invent pink nor indigo, they are present in our unconscious.
I ask them to live together, to be as beautiful as the other, they are my harmony.”
Inspired by his travels to the Middle East, Stephane Humbert Lucas launched his first collection in his eponymous brand in 2012 where he revealed his love for the Orient which he views as the cradle of the universe.
In the Western imaginary, the Orient refers to visions of picturesque luxury and refinement. The sumptuousness of dazzling fabrics, the heady blends of spices and flowers, the divine aroma, the decors of the Arabian Nights and the ambiance of mystical seraglios and the fantasies which resides within them.
The 777 collection alludes to this imaginary and compliments it with the author’s own spiritual and philosophical approach.
The symbols; especially in the Orient and the significance of the number seven in SHL’ s life allow us to understand the work and legacy of the artist and his quest for spirituality, beauty and self-fulfillment.
The number seven is the number of perfection, happiness and wisdom.
777 is a symbol of luck, protect and peace.
