Autonomy and the Post Modern Life

our pears from years past..

our pears from years past..

I am over the moon with the great reception to our new Post Modern Collection. I re-batched yesterday and have been wearing all three of them myself. Something I rarely do (wear perfume) on a day to day basis.
Perhaps it is the focus on floral accords that the perfumes are based on, and the way the new natural accords speak softly and exist closer to the body.
This is a personal thing with me. I love the intimacy of personal space fragrances. They are clandestine, in an overtly sensual way, and I am completely at ease with this energy. It allows for the autonomous narrative of human thought and desire to blossom.
I hope this is also true with everyone else. Maybe it is selfish, but so what. We spend so much time quashing our desires and apologizing for our joy , our health and preservation, that intentionally carving out time and space for beauty and embracing our own lightness of being, are really just us, being holistic and true to our natures.
Post Modern means many things to me. Not just naming a perfume collection, but also in the way I work as a painter. Having one foot in the past for the sake of perspective, and leaping head first into the future with everything else. Hurling myself into the atmosphere, like a raptor chasing the sun.
