• Eugène Chevreul and color perception

    Couleurs by Le Nez Insurgé is much more than just a collection of perfumes. It is an innovative approach which aims to represent each color with a distinctive smell. With five colors and five scents, this revolutionary line awakens the senses in ways you've never imagined before

    An olfactory exploration of chromatic nuances

    It was from daily experiences in the Le Nez Insurgé boutique and during olfactory workshops that Dorothée Duret made a fascinating discovery: our sense of smell involves synesthesia, a neurological phenomenon where several senses are associated in a lasting way. Throughout the “awakening to olfaction” workshops, it became clear that most of us have the ability to describe smells using colors.

    The Insurgent Nose offers us a modern vision of synesthesia by exploring the way in which odors can evoke colors. This approach, anchored in a neo-Art & Craft, reinforces the values ​​of tradition and authenticity. The Couleurs perfumes by Le Nez Insurgé invite everyone to explore their own personal synesthesia and to give words to the sensations and emotions triggered by smells.

  • A new sensory approach

    The inspiration behind this olfactory adventure dates back to the 19th century, thanks to the work of Eugène Chevreul, a chemist whose research revolutionized our understanding of color perception. His discoveries influenced renowned artists and craftsmen, such as those of the Art & Craft movement, founded by William Morris and John Ruskin. This philosophy which puts craftsmanship at the heart of art finds unexpected echoes in the world of perfumery.

    With Couleurs par Le Nez Insurgé, immerse yourself in a world where the senses intertwine, where colors come to life thanks to smells and where synesthesia becomes an olfactory reality. Explore our unique fragrances and discover the secrets of chromatic nuances. Join an unprecedented sensory adventure and give voice to your own synesthesia.
