Winter in Provnece

Life fell into a quiet pace. In the mornings I count the bell tolls while the angular winter light rakes across the crumpled bed covers. In the evenings the cry of the starlings marks 6pm as they dance to their symphony in the sky.

fireplace-provence-cinemagraph-615 The distant sound of a person’s footsteps on the quiet ancient streets, the soft ambience of rain outside my aged glass window plane. Most days nothing is happening. The stores have closed for the season, the visitors have gone home to Paris and on many of the restaurants old signs hang saying closed until April.

I go for long walks between the towns, the vista dotted with chimney stacks dancing with smoke. A dusty blue haze settles in before each sunset, a faint reminder of richer blues skies ahead.

It’s better than I imagined, the quiet after years of thriving on noise. Life noise, street noise, work noise. Manhattan just seems to constantly hummm. I used to be afraid of silence but now I find myself in it and it is there in the void where I can paint all the worlds I dream of.

As I work in the short hours of afternoon light I watch as it scans with each passing minute through the room I photograph in. It always seems to start with such gusto and by the time it reaches the last corner before slipping away it slows to a linger like taking that last sip of champagne.

The nights are illuminated by roaring fires and home cooked meals. For years I cursed the winter, I never knew it could actually be so warm. I watch the trees and the vines and the rosebushes rest… and I rest… because with spring awaits new wonders to discover .

Flowerbomb

For over 10 years Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb has been an exploding sensation of floral delight for passionate, energetic, independent and stylish women all around the globe. They asked us to create a Cinemagraph for this special anniversary evoking the power of rose and the release of that intoxicating scent on a warm summer rain shower they have managed to capture inside a bottle for us to enjoy day after day.

The scent which conjures up provocative femininity and a creative spirit is a modern interpretation of a female warrior, sweet but theatricality strong. A floral dance of freesia, jasmine, and centifolia rose balance with amber and patchouli make this perfume forever iconic.

NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée

In a delicate skin toned bottle, fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez created a new perfume inspired by sensuality. The sensuality of skin, the delicacy of fragrance, the seduction of memory evoked through scent. True to the designer’s cosmopolitan and minimalistic style, the perfume has a mature femininity. It’s a sophisticated confidence which to me is above all things, sexy.

NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée is velvety, powdery musk. A floral bouquet of Bulgarian rose and white jasmine balanced with a woody vetiver and cedar.

“With the original NARCISO fragrance, I wanted to create an extremely sexy fragrance. NARCISO Eau de Parfum Poudrée captures feminity and its core in an even more seductive way. It is both tender and powerful – and immediately addictive.”

– Narciso Rodriguez
