Théros means "Summer" in ancient Greek. As the 2nd Vincent Micotti x Teodor Currentzis Edition, the theme is summer, a summer that is dark, enigmatic, passionate. Théros is a paradise like summer to memorise, a delightful audacity to believe.
Théros is composed based on a large dose of genuine oud oil from Vietnam and Laos. It has nothing in common with the oud notes from the conventional creations. The natural oud, especially Kyara, has a beautifully velvety and distinctively delicate character, which is the key reason for using this outrageously precious oil. This gives the noble character to the perfume, the aroma of sun-heated sand, the tender skin under the sun, the salty sea water, the bright blue sky all expand into a vast picture of dreams.
Eau de Parfum Concentrée comes in a flacon that is hand-decorated with pure silver stain following an 800-year-old traditional method – the authentic technique used for the stained glass of cathedrals.
Dark, vibrant, theatrical.
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.
THEME: SUMMER; SUBTITLE: Sun, Untitled Love, The Island
When the summer sun heats up the skin,
When the memory of tender kisses remains savage,
When your poem cannot be understood,
When your love drives you to be another you,
When your passion takes you to unknown islands,
When the hot sand and sea water become a piece of art,
When the philosopher meets the alchemist,
When a potion of antiquity leads to intuitive experiment...
