甜美的玫瑰香氣,是很多香水迷入門的不二選擇。但這時間久了,嗅覺和味蕾磨得成熟銳利,對最熟悉總是最挑剔;於是輕柔的玫瑰顯得過於軟弱,嬌豔的玫瑰則太顯傲氣,只能與玫瑰芬芳分道揚鑣,好一陣子沒有再見。

 

然而,一向強調個性化與藝術性,且著重於中性香氣的瑞典香氛品牌Byredo,繼推出令人耳目一新的Rose Noir(夜幕玫瑰淡香精)之後,今年又再次選擇以玫瑰為主題作為2015年重量級香氣,特別讓人好奇它的用意。

 

Rose Noir(夜幕玫瑰淡香精)作為對於愛情經典象徵的全新詮釋,在大馬士革玫瑰香氣中,融入泥土香調、葡萄柚、青苔以及麝香,引領感官進入一個沉穩而神秘之境,在香氛市場中獲得許多關注,那些別了玫瑰的舊愛紛紛回籠。

 

今年的ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND(無人之境淡香精),則以全然不同的手法,談及戰爭、和平與犧牲,將浪漫的玫瑰一把推入深不見底的道德想像裡,任人省思。Byredo創辦人Ben Gorham胸口有個刺青,其緣由是為了紀念第一次世界大戰期間,在戰場上拯救了無數性命的護士們;這些偉大的女人們,無私地將生命、青春、專業與勇氣皆奉獻給了前線的士兵,還有偌大的國家。

 

The Rose of No Man's Land

 

I've seen some beautiful flowers,

Grow in life's garden fair,

I've spent some wonderful hours,

Lost in their fragrance rare;

But I have found another,

Wondrous beyond compare.

 

There's a rose that grows on "No Man's Land"

And it's wonderful to see,

Tho' its spray'd with tears, it will live for years,

In my garden of memory.

 

It's the one red rose the soldier knows,

It's the work of the Master's hand;

Mid the War's great curse, Stands the Red Cross Nurse,

She's the rose of "No Man's Land".

 

Out of the heavenly splendour,

Down to the trail of woe,

God in his mercy has sent her,

Cheering the world below;

We call her "Rose of Heaven",

We've learned to love her so.

 

There's a rose that grows on "No Man's Land"

And it's wonderful to see,

Tho' its spray'd with tears, it will live for years,

In my garden of memory.

 

It's the one red rose the soldier knows,

It's the work of the Master's hand;

Mid the War's great curse, Stands the Red Cross Nurse,

She's the rose of "No Man's Land".

  

 

Byredo在近百年後,與丹麥超模Freja Beha Erichsen希望聯手喚起眾人對相關議題的重視,於是重新為ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND這個名字注入全新的嗅覺詮釋。先以粉紅胡椒衝破序章,如同打破沉默黑夜的那一道光;再以土耳其玫瑰花瓣,象徵持續不斷的堅毅;最後由覆盆子花與白琥珀娓娓道出永恆的純潔,期望這款淡香精能舒緩不安,帶來勇氣。

 

ROSE OF NO MAN’S LAND(無人之境淡香精)今年9月中旬至明年同期,將捐出其收入的5%無國界醫生基金會  http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/ 。

 

每一次無人之境淡香精接觸肌膚之際,都是看似輕盈實則沉重的一種宣示,那是對和平的渴望、對奉獻的景仰,還有對於戰場上數不盡的犧牲,和那些值得被尊敬的女人們,致上的崇高敬意。
