Liquides Imaginaires Bete Humaine Eau de Parfum



Bête Humaine | The fragrant and lively trace of a man of the forest.

A person become wild after withdrawing from the urban world, his wanderings across all the scents of nature and his meanders in the forest have made this green adventurer a Bête Humaine with a passion for chestnut trees.

“Since the 17th century, philosophers have dreamt of defining humans' relationship to animals. Whether I am called “Homo sapiens”, “Modern man”, “Mankind”, “Human” or “Human being”, I am an animal. A wild man, a mythological figure in literature and art. I am the link between civilized humanity and the Elven spirits of an untamed nature. I live free in faraway lands, mysterious forests and boundless plains. My skin and my fur are both my weakness and my protection. I live naked, wearing only my scent which is that of nature. Ice-cold rivers, resinous forests, blazing rocks heated by the sun, carpets of leaves where I sleep. I am hunted and a hunter, like a beast. Driven by fear, armed with strength, cloaked in my scent. I am a man with a lion’s heart. BÊTE HUMAINE is my species."
