L'Artisan Parfumeur decided to do something different for the launch of our new fragrance: Nuit de Tubereuse. We collaborated with a US-based graffiti and digital artist, Mike Davis, to design a poster for us. The inspiration for the image came from every aspect of what the perfume is all about. Nuit de Tubereuse is a daring and narcotic perfume. It is the perfume of a luminous and romantic summer evening in Paris intoxicated with bright lights and the vibrating night life. We wanted Mike to be inspired not only by a these descriptions of the perfume, but the actual fragrance itself, so we gave him a bottle of the perfume to become even more inspired by.
This is the amazing image Mike created:
This unique art will appear globally at all of our boutiques as well as our poster campaign throughout NYC.
