Volutes - Diptyque

1930, an ocean liner sailing between Marseilles and Saigon. On the upper deck women linger in evening dress, long mouthpieces in their hands.
The orchestra plays in the salon, the Charleston takes over from the waltzes. Time dilates. From his childhood memories, Yves Coueslant, one of the founders of the Maison, has preserved sounds, colours and above all scents. Like that of the blond tobacco of the "Egyptians" smoked by the most refined, which rose in swirls of smoke, mixing its fragrance with the smell of powder.
