Inspired by Curzio Malaparte’s astonishing cliff top home on the island of Capri, Villa M situates the wearer on the sun drenched terrace watching the sea and sky kiss at an azure horizon. Flanked at its back by the island’s lush vegetation and cooled by the salted spray of the sea below, Villa M dreams at the meeting point between land, sky and sea.

As an artist Paul Schütze is one of the few to work in the medium of scent. Captivated by the notion of capturing the ephemeral, his collection of three scents are olfactory snapshots of three fleeting moments, three otherwise lost memories. ‘Tears of Eros’ recalls an evening in the artist’s studio; incense from Japan, a discarded clementine skin and a just-blooming potted hyacinth. ‘Cirebon’ remembers a mystical night in Java with vetiver Java, lemongrass, tamarind, bigarade and cedar. ’Behind the Rain’ reimagines a fir-lined Cycladean beach after a storm; resin, sap, wet bark, moss and lichen. Roullier White is delighted to be invited to carry this limited production line by Paul Schütze.
