  • 18• Monsieur Marquay Perfume bottle in its box dedicated by Salvador Dali to Joseph Foret

    "They say I'm crazy, but Foret is even crazier than me, he undertakes books that nobody has tried or had the idea of doing. » Salvador Dali (pour présenter Joseph Foret, le 22 février 1964 à New-York) Box designed by Joseph Foret Art publisher 64, rue La Fayette Paris 9e, known for its edition of the Apocalypse (1). The handwritten dedication of Salvador Dali can be seen Monsieur Marquay, presented in a bottle and box designed and illustrated by Salvador Dali for Marquay Parfumeur, 1953 Unique copy with the publisher's stamp, and dedication to the publisher by Salvador Dali in manuscript on one side of the jacket. Provenance: Piece sold at auction after the ruin of Foret (2) circa 1970. This anecdotal piece was made and dedicated during the first years of the Apocalypse while Dali and Foret were faced with the laborious study of the artistic realisation of the work. The close complicity of the publisher Joseph Foret with Salvador Dali Dali était très proche de Joseph Foret (1901-1991) qui a réussi l'exploit de réunir les plus grands acteurs du monde des arts, de la peinture et de la littérature pour concevoir une oeuvre éditoriale gigantesque sur un sujet dantesque et divin. Un travail qui les a rapproché pendant de longues années de travail collaboratif. Le livre a été achevé en 1961. Joseph Foret and his edition of the Apocalypse Dali was very close to Joseph Foret (1901-1991), who managed the feat of bringing together the greatest players in the world of art, painting and literature to conceive a gigantic editorial work on a Dantesque and divine subject. A work that brought them together during several years of collaborative work. Le livre a été achevé en 1961. (1) It's an avalanche of record numbers that surrounds the Apocalypse, a book-monument conceived at the end of the 1950s by Joseph Foret.... The work, in any case, emanates an emotion of incredible intensity, born of the diversity of artistic sensibilities that it juxtaposes. An aesthetic abundance wanted by Foret. ... Orphan at 6 years old, starting from nothing and "mounted" in Paris, he meets the greatest: Picasso, Chagall, Dali. A wonder. One night in 1958 - a night of ecstasy? - Foret sets himself a challenge: to create a unique work, the work of his life. At the age of 57, he becomes the project manager... Despite the refusals of Picasso, Chagall and Mauriac, the company takes shape. To the painters is entrusted the creation of three illustrations each one corresponding to the various contemporary currents. Buffet representing figurative art, Dali surrealism, Zadkine cubism, Foujita Japanese art, Mathieu lyrical abstraction, Léonor Fini lyrical art and Trémois hyperrealism. The writers - Cocteau, Rostand, Rops, Giono, Cioran, Guitton - are entrusted with the task of writing in their own register, reflections and inspirations on the apocalypse of our time. All in all, a striking rendering, with, like a powerfully rhythmic text-image phrasing, which is accompanied by the text of Saint John, translated by R. P. Boismard, from the biblical school of Jerusalem, and calligraphed by Micheline Nicolas. "More than four thousand hours of gilding work to produce titles, lettering and highlights of the gold illustrations," comments Karoutzos. A unique book, of all records, the largest (210 kg) and the most expensive (estimated at 100 million francs in 1961, 200 million in 1963...) made on a single sheet of paper from the Moulins Richard de Bas which can be unfolded over 150 metres in length. . Dali and the Apocalypse. First visitor to the International Book Art and Bibliophily Fair (1959). Salvador Dali came in person. The master had to present the well-known book he had been working on for a long time : The Apocalypse, the most expensive and heaviest book in the world. The cover of the book is illustrated by Dali's sculpture, an impressive inlaid bronze door, weighing 150 kilos and representing the apocalyptic outpouring. To achieve it, Dali is said to have burst with an axe a wax plate in which he drowned needles, nails, shells, precious stones and also gold knives and forks. For, according to the master, "the Apocalypse can be eaten like cheese, cooked to perfection". Completed in 1961, the work travels around the world. During an exhibition in the Vatican, throne room, Pope John XXIII declared that it must be "seen by the crowds". This prophecy was largely fulfilled: until the mid-1970s, more than 140 exhibitions were devoted to it, and 7 million visitors attended. The Apocalypse is then at its zenith. Before succumbing to oblivion, to experience a desert crossing marked successively by (2) the ruin of Foret, the release of its blockbuster, .... after Patrimoine by Séverine Dieuze L'express March 22, 2004 Bibliography: " Représentation du dandy à l'image de Fred Aster " (L'art du Parfum C.M.

  • 6• Remobina..Parfum Royal by Jean Patou Reconstitution of the perfume by Jean Kerléo 1997 Osmothèque

    A Treasure preserved at the Osmotique of Versailles Parfum Royal by Jean Patou Jumbo - unique creation Bottle designed by Michèle Teysseyre Private collection GF The oldest perfume ever recreated preserved at the Osmotheque of Versailles dates back to the first century. It is Parfum Royal, whose recipe appears in one of the thirty-seven volumes of Natural History, written by Pliny the Elder. An essence that has twenty-seven constituents (generally, a perfume contains ten to forty, or more). MY MEETING WITH MICHELE TEYSSEIRE I met Michèle Teysseire in 1995, during a perfume fair at the Hotel Capoul in Toulouse. She had just lost part of her works, destroyed in a fire that had ravaged her artist's studio. The studio, located in the Chartreuse in a central district of Toulouse, was rebuilt. It is there that she continued to paint to the delight of a faithful clientele admiring her paintings. She will use fragments of her charred works to make new artistic creations. Geneviève Fontan and Michèle Teysseire at the Parfum Art et Valeur exhibition at Capoul in Toulouse, 1995 Michèle Teysseire has an emotional way of inviting you into her projects and so, as a young associate publisher (Ed. Fontan & Barnouin), we entered into a timely editorial partnership, resulting in the release of a luxurious presentation combining a book on flavours and an exceptional fragrance. A CONCEPT Presentation box for the book Flavours and Scents of Ancient Rome and the perfume Royal The presentation box contains the recipe book and the date-shaped bottle presented in a boxed set reminiscent of the date palm fruit transport crates. Michèle Teysseire, meticulous and perfectionist, wanted to participate in every step of the creation of the book, the box, the bottle and the packaging. The filling, the wrapping and the sealing with gold thread were carried out in Paris in the workshops of the House of Jean Patou. The book Saveurs et senteurs de la Rome antique is a collection of 80 Apicius recipes, developed by Italian chef Renzo Pedrazzini. Each recipe is illustrated with a drawing by Michèle Tesseyre. This first edition was published by Fontan & Barnouin Editions. Le Parfum Royal is a perfume composed by perfumer Jean Kerléo, based on a recipe by Pliny the Elder (1st century CE), kept in the cellars of the Osmotheque in Versailles. THE MEETING - JEAN DE MOÜY, MICHELE TEYSSEIRE, JEAN KERLEO Jean de Moüy, Jean Patou's grand-nephew, managed the Maison Jean Patou from 1980 until the 2000s. Very sensitive to art and a lover of old books, which he collects with genuine passion, he acquired many paintings by the MT artist, deeply moved by his talent as a painter. So much so that one day, as a patron of the arts, he asked Jean Kerléo, the olfactory designer of the Maison Jean Patou, to design a perfume for the release of the book Saveurs et senteur de la Rome Antique. He then presented Jean Kerléo to Michèle Teysseire, who asked for the "impossible", i.e. a perfume that illustrates the 80 recipes of Apicius. Jean Kerléo reports "When I was asked to make an ancient perfume, I first said NO, I already have trouble making modern perfumes. If it's to go back centuries, then it's illusory." And then he said: Let's try it anyway! And one thing leading to another, or from one wand to another, the Royal Perfume, mentioned by Pliny the Elder in his famous book Histoire Naturelle in book XIII, took shape, so to speak! Jean Kerléo encountered obstacles in the search for raw materials that had to be gleaned all over the world. As for the quantities that were not mentioned, he had to make multiple attempts to find the right dosage. Finally, after a year, through perseverance, driven by the desire to achieve his goals, Jean Kerléo succeeded in reconstituting the Parfum Royal. Today, the Parfum Royal is preciously preserved in the cellars of the Osmothèque and only comes out into the open for exceptional occasions. I have always had an immense pleasure, -I could say to talk with Jean Kerléo- but I would say to listen to him. He has immense knowledge and willingly tells, without emphasis, fascinating stories about his life at Jean Patou and all sorts of tasty anecdotes that I should have written down to tell you today. The Royal Perfume, the first of all times, is a treasure for the Osmotheque of Versailles. This unique place in the world, founded by Jean Kerléo in 1990, has kept in its cellars the precious scents of the world's greatest perfumes since the first century. ANTIQUE ROME If you go back to ancient Rome, Rome had the best tables in the world. Its cuisine was spicy and the presence of perfume could not go unnoticed. It was customary to perfume oneself, like an olfactory aperitif, just before sitting down to the table! Perfume was in a way the dominant "grain of salt" of flavours. Parfum Royal, seems to have been developed for the kings of Parthia (formerly Iran). A perfume seems to be composed of 24 aromatics and 3 excipients. It is mentioned in the book of Paul Faure, Perfumes and Aromates of Antiquity. It is in this book that Jean Kerléo was able to find the list of ingredients. One of his friends, Gilbert Julien, passionate about herbalism, helped him a lot in his research. MEMORY 17 NOVEMBER 1997 - Inauguration of the Parfum Royal, at Jean Patou's house, 7 Rue St Florentin in Paris In the salons of Jean Patou's private mansion, the inauguration of the book Saveurs et Senteurs de la Rome Antique and of the Parfum Royal by Jean Patou, reconstructed by Jean Kerléo, took place on 17 November 1997. A memorable event! Photos of the evening at Jean Patou 17 November 1997 Parfums Art et Valeur magazine, 1997 Mr and Mrs Jean Kerléo during the cocktail party The "feast" was prepared by Renzo Pedrazzini, author of the recipes in the book, who had chosen the best preparations of the great Roman dinners. However, thechoice of wines caused some discussion and finally the idea of serving Roman wines was abandoned. Indeed, Roman wines are spicy and sweet, which could have disturbed or surprised the palate of the uninformed. The choice of wines was therefore entrusted to the wine antique dealer, Hervé Lorain. Geneviève Fontan and Gérard Gasquet, decorator at Jean Patou A COCKTAIL BY RENZO PEDRAZZINI On the occasion of the 2nd salon Parfum art et Valeur in Toulouse, Renzo Pedrazzini was the master chef of the cocktail party. Guests were able to discover the flavours of ancient Rome. THE ROYAL PERFUME Coming straight from the cellars of Jean Patou, this royal scent was intended for perfuming date-shaped cards. I treasure these few millilitres of rare scent for a solitary pleasure. PERFUME CARD IMPREGNATED WITH THE ROYAL PERFUME Perfume card Parfum Royal Let's stay in the Rembobina, with the release of the book on scented cards published by the House of Arfon in 1997, which features the scented card-datte. A scented card (impregnated with Parfum Royal), in the shape of a numbered date-bottle, was offered to Arfon's best customers. The Parfum Royal came straight from the Osmothèque, I keep what little of this precious perfume I have left as a relic. FLAVOUR side SENSOR side I had dinner at the Lugdunum at Renzo Pedrazini's in St Bertrand de Comminges. It's a unique experience to do once in a lifetime. Authentic cuisine! Cultural cuisine! You can taste what was served at the time of Apicius. Going to dinner at the Lugdunum in St Bertrand de Comminges, is like a kind of "live" in Ancient Rome. On the scent side, I am transported by the Royal Perfume, which I used to put a few drops on the back of my hand not so long ago. Now I don't touch it anymore. My friends and family don't perceive it the same way. They ask me half-figuratively, half-grapefruit: "...but what is this perfume?" In conclusion, this scent is a curiosity, I like its spicy scent, a fine scent of leather, exotic woods, maybe also... I have designed this perfume to be used at the table, at a Roman dinner or a social dinner. END
