Querelle by Parfumerie Générale by Pierre Guillaume

Part of Parfumerie Générale Private Collection

Querelle is a moody, brooding scent that pays tribute to Jean Genet's novel Querelle de Brest and the eponymous film adaptation by R.W Fassbinder. 

Opening with a carnal notes of caraway, myrrh and cinnamon Querelle follows a contradictory path.

Masked behind the mysterious, primal opening notes vetiver and rose emerge in the heart notes exploring the duality of femininity & masculinity. 

Finishing with a base of ambergris, tonka beans, oak moss and incense Querelle simmers with dark complexity.
