Olfactive Studio - Chambre Noire
A sensual and mysterious fragrance, Chambre Noire reveals itself from the shadows using the spotlight of the vibrant top note. A fragrance to be shared in the privacy of some far-off hotel room.
It reveals its character gradually, exuding sensual notes of leather against a backdrop of warmth and opulence.
Chambre Noire – Clémence René-Bazin
What happens in the darkroom? Mystery.
Behind the thick curtain of the imagination, minds ignite. Serge Gainsbourg did sleep in a dark room but it was another genius, Leonardo da Vinci, who would win the paternity test.
In the darkroom, light is queen and darkness the heir apparent. Light uses the closed space to cast shapes and contours. The darkroom is magical. Its optical formula transforms, with astounding precision, the real into its inverted and reverted image. It plays tricks on the eye and makes us see the world upside down. The eye becomes dizzy.
In the darkroom, shadows are promises. To satiate the obscure object of photographic desire, it is worth taking the time to do it in the dark. Isolated in this space, something from the realm of intimacy and secrecy occurs. A lover’s ritual takes shape. Patience and attention are required for the enchantment to happen, for the dark to illuminate.
The darkroom re-wakens focus and contemplation and keeps speed and haste at bay. It is a temple for the eye to meditate; a temple, for it shelters as much as it reveals; captures as much as it delivers.
