An exquisite blend of green, citrus and floral notes

An exquisite and delicate apricot-note from osmanthus blossoms, combined with a touch of citrus and deep resins, expresses the complexities of true love. It encompasses the whole spectrum of feelings, the powerful rush of emotion, and conveys the abstract.

Mark created 1000 Kisses Deep in honour of the lasting love he shares with his wife.

Mark on 1000 Kisses Deep

"I always find Mo, my wife, difficult to understand, but that can then be expressed through music. I don't really get her - she always leaves a little bit to be revealed. And you don't actually know how to express yourself, so you're in that bloke-state of mind. That was very well summed up by [Robert] Smith in The Cure when he wrote a love song and called it Untitled because he was trying to explain how he felt, struggling to do it, and there's only so many words you can use to express love. It's very difficult. I wanted a perfume that summed that up. I did call it Untitled for quite a long time. It expressed that rather enigmatic, rather difficult to pin down feeling, when you're involved with someone else, but can't put it into words. So that piece of music really inspired me"

But when I heard Madeleine Peyroux singing Leonard Cohen's Thousand Kisses Deep - there's such wonderful lyrics in that; just a whole series of magical pieces of work - and it summarised the feeling for me for the first time ever. The whole concept of a thousand kisses deep is just such a lovely thought for someone who has been married for however many years."
