Design master Philippe Starck has created three fragrances that usher in his new perfume label, STARCK PARIS

From the refurbishment of the former French president’s private apartments at the Élysée, furniture design, to fashion design, Philippe Starck has conquered the world with his distinctive style of design. The multi-hyphenate creative has come to grasp with the world of perfumes, handing over to three renowned master perfumers a personal vision filled with curiosity, audacity, sensitivity, elegance and generosity.

Born out of his childhood dreams and his own imagination, the collection includes three scents: Peau de Soie, Peau de Pierre and Peau d'Ailleurs. Starck describes Peau de Soie as a paradox, a perfume whose femininity wraps around a man's heart; Peau d'Ailleurs as strange, undefinable and elusive; and Peau de Pierre as a masculine fragrance that reveals a man's feminine side.

Starck says, "I wanted a perfume that you can't remember because it doesn't exist, that you can't name because words grow silent when you want to talk about the perfume of a happy memory, the perfume of the shadow, of the cosmic scent of emptiness. The idea was to grasp the ungraspable, to explore abstraction, to make the invisible visible, to make the air vibrate. This unending territory transports us into the total unknown, to that far-off place that sends us back into our unconscious, to pure spirit."

The collection has been introduced to Hong Kong by K11 by joining hands with Perfumes y Diseño, the renowned Spanish fragrance house.
