SULÉKÓ, The echo of your soul
This very moving song pays tribute to the power of perfume. Perfume is a reflection of oneself. It tells our story and reveals something about us even before we have said a word. It also survives us, as the most vivid memory of a being. A well-chosen fragrance will magnify the person who wears it, will act as an aura, a second skin, the echo of the soul – “soul-echo”.
SULÉKÓ reflects the approach of a Russian perfumer who emigrated to France after the Revolution: Konstantin Weriguine. He worked alongside Ernest Beaux at Bourjois-Chanel. In his book, “Souvenirs et Parfums” (“Memories and Perfumes”), he describes beautifully the scents of Russia. SULÉKÓ was inspired by this approach and created four universes defined olfactively, but also emotionally: SULÉKÓ WINTER, SULÉKÓ SPRING, SULÉKÓ SUMMER and SULÉKÓ FALL. Each universe matches a specific state of mind, a personnality or a phase of our life.
