Odeur De Sainteté
"Odeur De Sainteté is a new artistic experience lived by Chantal Sanier.
Beside her paintings, collages or photos and after having explored over years the visual and esthetic aspects of perfumes for prestigious brands ( Caron , Balenciaga Rochas, Hermès..), Chantal Sanier has elected torediscover a more personal tie with the content of the bottle.
And what if one would start all over again?
Research takes years.
Understanding and working like perfumers who did not know the synthetic molecules.
Recover the absolute joy of living matters, perfectly healthy and naturals.
The subject becomes passion.
The perfume dimensions, therapeutic, erotic, culinary and ritual resurface and fascinate.
Born in Montpellier, the leading perfume city in the Middle Ages, Chantal Sanier has installed a laboratory spot in her "garrigue" in the very middle of 600 hectares.
Assisted in her undertaking by a brother pharmacist and a professor at the Montpellier's Faculty of Sciences, Chantal Sanier distils thyme, cyst and pistachio lentist in a preserved environment.
Then she composed in her workshop in Paris on the quays by the Seine the nine elixirs of Odeur de Sainteté.
La Menthe Religieuse, L'Amer Supérieur, Sainte Nitouche, L'Homme Quantique and L'Eau Culte are a return to sources, a distilled time ,an homage to those that have preceded and a joyful hymn to celebrate the emotional and sacred bound with the nature."
