The problem of molecular cuisine
"We were at this new place yesterday. They now also offer molecular cuisine."

"Oh, what was it?"

"We just had a snack from the little lunch menu."


"Yes. There was NATO sandwiches."

"Excuse me?"

"Liver sausage barbed wire on pumpernickel grenades in butter camouflage. In addition an accompanying olive gas attack and forks dipped in fir resin for the culinary bivouac feeling."

"Well, how was it?"

"Interesting. A synaesthetic experience."

"I mean: Did it taste good?"

"I don't know."


Don't worry, I don't plan on doing clumsy molecular kitchen bashing. That would be quite 2010 on the one hand and unfair on the other: this branch of creative cuisine certainly still has its right to exist today. The small dialogue is merely intended to point out the dangers of creativity that has degenerated into an end in itself, which, having become stupid out of sheer feasibility, goes on in unrestrained combinatorics without ever considering a well-formulated goal apart from crooked metaphors.

"Ile Pourpre by Les Liquides Imaginaires has a similar problem. The combination of dry dark earthiness with cold sweet berry fruit (ice wine from the sparkling wine cooler) fits well in theory to the eponymous "purple island", on which wild, night green vegetation alternates with exotic, alien fruit stock. However, this connection always remains rational, without really inspiring the imagination of the smeller. The picture does not self-adjust and thus seems strangely clever and constructed. This is probably also due to the quite common modern base, which shimmers through the earthy-fruity undergrowth after only a short time and makes one think more of an office than of a mystically dazzling island in the distance.

I'm not saying an artificially heaped island can't have any appeal. But it is a rather technical and landscape attraction and not a genuine olfactory-imaginative one. Therefore, I recommend to anyone who feels addressed in theory by the purple temptation to sample a few milliliters before he or she commits to a longer-term (and not quite cheap) holiday on this island.

A fruit from an imaginary island
I was so blessed to see the owners of the brand Philippe di meo and David Frossard in person. The brand it self is more than a perfume. An elevator taking you form materials' word to spirituality. Vases overflowed by spirituality, sensuality, emotions, and souls. The glasses are made to present vases' concept while the liquid inside opens the doors of the imaginary for you. I bought this perfume for my wife which is accompanied with Philippe's hand written text for her. This perfume smells like a fruit that you have never smelled. A fruit from an unknown island. It may have no good silage but it grabs you like a serial killer. I love the way this perfume projects. I highly recommend this perfume for those who want to be mysterious and sensual.
