État Libre d'Orange - The Afternoon of a Faun 100 ml Eau de Parfum
L’Après-midi d’un Faune
The faun awakes from his mid-day sleep, and contemplates his morning’s encounters with some nymphs. In his reflections, his pursuit of the alluring creatures takes on libidinous proportions as he seeks to satisfy his desire. It is a beautiful memory - but did it really happen? Reality fades, and confusion reigns until overcome by sleep - which can open the door to more dreaming.
When Nijinsky danced the story of L’Après-midi d’un Faune in 1912, he created a scandal. The carnal subtext of Mallarme’s poem became an explicit expression of a sexual appetite. The ballet went beyond the sensual to a demonstration of a powerful virility. Shameless, the critics declared. In this scent, find the relationship between the suggestive fantasy and the seductive reality.
