THE STORY

A SENSATION OF PURE PLEASURE CHARGED WITH EMOTION


Fugit Amor is, without question, one of Rodin’s most beautiful compositions: the two straining bodies are combined in one perfect flowing movement.
This two-figure group, which appeared twice on The Gates of Hell, was inspired by Dante’s second circle of Hell, where he describes the eternal wandering of couples bound by their sin of forbidden love – and to which, Rodin brilliantly added a Baudelarian theme.

The fragrance FUGIT AMOR is a stunning representation of the contrast between the rough, thick, powerful aspect of a marble block and the transparency, its fragile, delicate aspect, as well as the extreme finesse revealed once the brut material carved. The explosive start with a crystalline facet, cold, almost frozen, evokes the transparency and the finesse of the marble. The heart, gradually warming up, recalls the emotions that burst and nourish the flame of a forbidden love.
