In an isolated desert, where the sunlight is perpetual, and the wind is silent, a black and white chessboard is set in the centre of a dilapidated, ancient stone circle. Time and I started a game of chess.
Every chess move leads to an unknown place, an unknown time. Neither bypass nor escape route exists. The gradient of the blue starry sky becomes the only witness of this once in a lifetime chess game.
Closing my eyes, taking a deep breath, I make a bold move. Suddenly, a breeze of green leaves flows through the sun-warmed stone circle. Just as the legend says, for every winning round against Time, a lustrous new leaf will grow.
Point Mort — a chess game with Time; a new start of tomorrow.
Vincent Micotti's Take on Oud
Oud, with its long history of cultural influence inspired many for more than thousand years. For Vincent Micotti, delving into the true origin of Oud, and its distinctive context played in the social and cultural environment, is a key factor in creating a Oud perfume.
In the past years, Vincent Micotti has released four perfumes which took the most precious Oud oil as the main character: Oud Ankaa, Théros, Théros Elixir, and Point Mort. They all have its unique identity and challenge the status quo in today's Oud world.
The broad olfactory spectrum exhibited in these perfumes identify its distinctive characters and its artistic value. "I am not a Oud dealer, I use Oud just as using any other raw ingredients, selecting only the best suitable ones for a specific concept I have in mind. If people want to own Oud as "Oud", my perfumes are not for them. There are large markets out there dealing all kinds of Oud, but my context is not at all the same," says Vincent Micotti. "For the Théros Elixir, we even made our own extraction with a historic piece of Kyara oud, that was a crazy one-off project. And unsurprisingly, all kinds of Kyara Oud appeared on the market since then."
As beautiful as any other creations from nature, Oud deserves an artistic interpretation of another kind.
Special release of a bespoke perfume
Point Mort is an unusual sur-mesure perfume, and Oud is particularly chosen for its distinctive character to transmit a resilient attitude.
As a bespoke project, it is created for a person who is ignited by the artistry behind its olfactory composition, so that he cannot resist sharing this extraordinary creation with every perfume enthusiast. We therefore make only an extremely small batch to fulfil this wonderful wish.
Vincent Micotti’s daring approach of characterising the Oud and the interpretation of captivated imaginations turn Point Mort into a true work of art, which demand nothing else than its artistic existence.
