Earlier this year, niche line Régime des Fleurs launched Tears, a new unisex fragrance.
Beauty moves the soul to tears.
Régime des Fleurs teams with Christopher Niquet to ask: What does it mean for a perfume to explore masculinity in 2021, at a time when gender norms are being challenged more than ever? How can we use ‘masculine’ ingredients in a new way?
A provocative name, but don’t assume only sadness here. Have you ever experienced a work of art that moved you so deeply that it elicited a physical response? Have you become so overwhelmed with beauty or joy that it consumed you?
Tears was developed by perfumer Mathieu Nardin. The notes include lilac, orris, olibanum, frankincense, orange blossom, green cognac, rosewater, pink pepper, mandarin and ambergris.
Régime des Fleurs Tears is available at Field & Florist, $225 for 75 ml Eau de Parfum.
Update: according to the brand, Tears was not developed with Christopher Niquet and is not meant to explore masculinity.
