Interesting Facts

Of all the international fragrance creators, France's Stéphane Humbert Lucas has probably the most unusual approach. That is because Lucas draws his inspiration from various arts that have nothing in common with fragrances and flavors. The starting point for his work is an easel. There, he captures thoughts, notes, poems, images, and colors that flow through him. The resulting contrasts between harmony and the contradiction Lucas then try to translate into exclusive fragrances. Lucas also developed a soft spot for the Orient following many visits to the Middle East, which was evident in his first fragrance series (2012).

In the world of Stéphane Humbert Lucas, each color can be assigned its respective fragrance. That is why he creates his unique aromas according to the principle of synesthesia, meaning a direct correlation between both olfactory and visual senses.

The most notable fragrance creation by Lucas is probably the "777" series. Each bottle is modeled on an oriental temple with a dome and, once opened, exudes precisely such a fragrance. Whether the woody-spicy "Taklamakan", the oriental-sweet "Khol de Bahrein" or the floral-leathery "Manteuse" - with his creations for men and women, Lucas always evokes stories from the Arabian Nights.

The oriental world of fragrances by Stéphane Humbert Lucas (SHL) is available in selected boutiques and the brand's online store.
