It is a night of pale moonlight, a night toward the end of the 20th century, a night when the old world is ending and the new one is beginning. That night, Etat Libre founder Étienne de Swardt picked up Hyperion by Dan Simmons, a science fiction saga that celebrates the legend of the French Jesuit priest, paleontologist, and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Within the covers of the book, he read of de Chardin's ideas of the future of mankind: a celebration of transhumanism, of humanity enhanced by machines.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin died in 1955, but his spirit continues to travel. This fragrance imagines his ideas of the future of humanity colliding with the ideas of Japanese artist Shirow Masamune, author of the science fiction manga "Ghost in the Shell".
By mixing biotech and natural materials, this perfume celebrates the wake of the future and also whispers of a day to come when all of humanity is reunited and reorganized into an "infosphere". This perfume is the future. It comes to us from the radical thinking of 20th century.
The Ghost in the Shell is a perfume borne of the radical transhumanist thinking of the 20th century. It marks a new kind of evolution; of what a human can be, and what they can smell like.
