Gentle fluidity – note the small f – is part of perfumer Francis Kurkdjian’s experiment to see what happens when you set out with an identical set of notes but head off in two separate directions. The result? A complementary (but utterly different) pair of fragrances - gentle Fluidity (Gold) and Gentle fluidity (Silver) – that prove that a painter’s palette is just a starting point and that the magic only happens when the painter picks up his brush. Two distinct forms emerge from the master’s art – one for him and one for her. Both sharing the same DNA.
Gentle fluidity (Silver) is the fresher of this charming duo. Immediately, the fresh gin-and-tonic fizz of juniper berry dominates, followed closely by a spiced woody note that’s not quite as sharp as pine but still redolent of the cool, aromatic aroma of a coniferous forest. The coriander lends a metallic, peppery sheen to the woods that lifts the ashy greenness of the traditional fougère-like accord in the heart and modernizes it for the young professional we see this fitting to a T. Crisp, fresh, and with a certain champagne-like sparkle that connects the dots to its warmer, richer Gold counterpart, Gentle fluidity (Silver) is the kind of scent you can dress up with a white shirt and tie, or dress down in khakis, and it will never be less than perfect.
