« My mother, she was an anomaly, she was brilliant, she was loved but she paid a huge price. » from an Interview with Lisa Simone, in What Happened Miss Simone ?
« I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that. I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, it can only be attributable to human error. This conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye. » HAL 9000's iconic quote in 2001 : A Space Odyssey.
These remarks could summarize our new perfume, a marriage of Nina Simone and Stanley Kubrick. This fragrance is dedicated to them, to celebrate their talents, their deviations from the norm, from the theoretical value, from the expected. This disparity comes with an excess, from a « computer malfunction », forcing the dose on the iris and musk, and this sublime jeopardy has sprung up to become a perfume, carved by Daniela Andrier. A singularity. A difference. This perfume was necessary.

Why you'll love it
Low key but profound. The smell of empty space, a white void. She Was an Anomaly is a fragrance devoid of contrasts and more like an olfactory Pantone, here composed of white musks, sandalwood, and powdery orris notes. Formulated using artificial intelligence to perfectly balance and calibrate the proportions raw materials, this deceptively straightforward fragrance is in fact a window into the AI-assisted future of perfumery. A must-smell and favourite of our summer fragrance intern.
