Description Mood Indigo is inspired by L'Écume des jours, Michel Gondry's 2013 film adaptation of Boris Vian's 1947 novel Froth on the Daydream. The fragrance opens with an earthy accord of pepper chamomile and geranium. An incense accord grows in presence and soon becomes dominant. This is a warm, woody incense kissed by amber. It feels inviting and comfortable with an a paradoxical warm-cold effect. At times the fragrance is redolent of high mass in a medieval church; at other times it conjures up long winter evenings spent huddled around a fireplace. The effect is somewhat akin to Comme des Garçons' modern classic Avignon. Perfumer Mark Buxton was inspired by the film's jazz score. In describing the fragrance he remarked, "The fragrance is based on dark woody notes with a lot of incense, which represents the Jazz music for me."
