Inspired by an incredible trip to India, perfumer Marie Salamagne unveils a new interpretation of L'Eau d'Issey in a limited edition eau de toilette for women. Floral, sun-drenched and ethereal, L'Eau d'Issey Shades of Kolam captures Kolam's delicate, colourful arabesques: notes of Indian jasmine intertwine with fleeting rose petals.
To embellish the bottles for this special edition, the designers started afresh and designed a Kolam-style typography. The intertwined letters are evocative of this intricate art. The choice of fresh and vibrant colours echo the colours used to create patterns on the ground. But also the colours of India, this land where light transforms each colour into sheer emotion. The famous Indian pink was chosen for L'Eau d'Issey, a magnetic hue that infuses the bottle and reflects off the cap. Iconic photos of this magnificent adventure appear on the box. An invitation to travel.
What is Kolam? Kolam is a unique art that has been passed down from mother to daughter, generation after generation, for centuries. A technique that combines artistic expression and mathematical skill with age-old sprinkling techniques. These geometric patterns that Indian women draw using rice powder and coloured pigments create captivating arabesques that unfold into mandalas in concentric circles. With its many forms that intermingle in different ways, the art of Kolam calls for endless creativity. Each piece combines fascinating artwork with a striking colour palette.
