Philippe Starck has unveiled the first fragrances collection of his new Haute parfumerie brand, Starck Paris. The trilogy of scents in the ‘peau’ collection forms ‘a unique experience, a journey to the elsewhere, to the intangible.’ Today, Design Limited Edition presents you this incredible perfume edition!
Bespoke packaging unifies the series of smells — each fragrance is encapsulated in a uniquely-shaped abstract void and contained within rectangular glass volumes. a pastel pink, pale mint green and cool grey hue colorize the transparent cases, blending the senses to subtly match the traits of the scent.

While each unit can be used on its own, together the three bottles form a singular, undulating shape that wraps through the length of the glass masses. ‘Peau de soie’, ‘peau de pierre’ and ‘peau d’ailleurs’ are ‘olfactory poems and fruits of Starck’s enigmatic riddles for master perfumers: what is the odor of shadow or of light? what is the smell of attraction, of cosmic void or of the mysterious core of a telluric matter?’
More than just a design project, this is a personal project, coming from Philippe Starck’s brand and heart.

This incredible work took two years just to identify the right partners to work with and this was in fact one biggest challenges: choosing the perfect master perfumers to work with, the best in the world.
Peau or skin is a protective envelope; without skin, the perfume doesn’t exist.
Peau de soie looks like a female fragrance but inside is a shadow, an attractive almost masculine heart, far from the clichés we are confronted to in the media.
Peau de pierre evokes the ambivalent masculinity; it smells like a male perfume but within its core a female mystery.
Peau d’ailleurs is asexual; it is from elsewhere, it is the smell of something or someone we don’t know yet.
