Romain Gary achieved a literary subterfuge when he created Emile Ajar. Anonymity was his chance to reinvent himself, and to become manifold. Ajar is a chameleon-like fragrance that speaks of incarnation. Dark oriental Incense meets dazzling orchid. A union as ambivalent and complex as human nature itself. The light and shade within us all.
Additional notes include bergamot, pear, jasmine, sandalwood and oakmoss.
Jardins D’Écrivains Ajar is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, €85.
