french-born creative director and design marc atlan has teamed up with perfumer bertrand duchaufour
and kilian hennessy to create ‘petite mort™ (parfum d’une femme)‘, his first fragrance produced as
a limited edition of 100 bottles. aiming to create a pure and ‘aphrodisiacally compelling’ scent,
the dark perfume is an olfactory expression of total animalistic release. as a part of the project and launch,
a selection of renowned creative professionals ranging from architects to photographers were asked to
contribute an artwork that represents their interpretation of the fragrance and concept.
signed and numbered for authenticity, the limited artist proofs include works from fashion photographer
max vadukul, graphic designers antoine + manuel, french designer christian ghion, american artist
ellen jong and many more.

I love this collection! I just wish there was a larger edition of the perfume.
