JUST BEFORE is the gathering mist of expectation. It stretches out in yearning and aspires. A projection of unfettered imagination that acquires body and becomes passion, it contains the quiver of excitement, desire that’s shaped by imagination as one thought chases another.
JUST BEFORE captures the instant before a kiss, the skin you caress, your breath that mingles. It is that moment when we are enveloped in creative energy, when endless possibilities come together in a single arrow aimed at the bullseye. And before that moment strikes, it duplicates our heartbeats, dissolves our thoughts and mixes our emotions.
JUST BEFORE is the urge to achieve the desires we strain to reach every time, but never quite arrive at completely.
The bouquet announces its arrival with the freshness of Bergamot, in accord with the juicy expressiveness of Lemon and the pungent character of Saffron. This is how ideas are concentrated together, the beginning of expectation. With a sensual, embracing heart, thought is translated into action: Myrrh now starts its dance with Ylang-Ylang against the backdrop of Palo Santo, the essence used by Inca shamans in their religious rituals. The base, heart-rending and of incalculable depth, has the sweetness of Vanilla and the passion of Sandalwood, a reminder that the true pleasure of expectation is ultimately in the anticipation.
