Dreckig bleiben

Dreckig bleiben means hanging out with your best friends in your oldest but cosiest tracking pants, down by the river, in the warmth of a campfire. Your feet in the sand and a glass of wine in your hand. No suits, no high heels, no white shirts, no patent-leather shoes. Not playing a role, just being yourself. No decorum, no shenanigans. I am who I am. And the next day I’m going to crawl out of bed, happy and satisfied, with the scent of the night and the bonfire still hanging on me. It doesn’t come better than that.

Message in a Bottle

Open the bottle …release the soft, salty wind, on which the fresh floral notes of neroli and gardenia are carried. As your senses follow these flowers of purity, they lead you to a heart that is more sensual. At the heart of this paradise lies the jasmine and lust, giving way to an exotic ylang, orange flower concrete, skin-soft apricot flower and a light velvety rose. Further still into paradise, and the message turns to the delicate warmth of woods and amber. Cistus and civet, create a longer lasting testament to the pleasures of this message.
