THoO – Keep Glazed

When Lucifer invites you personally on an unforgettable, gourmand journey through the tropical heat, fruit plants, straight into the allure of all sweet and sticky, the temptation that steals the soul is revealed.

In the Bible the word temptation primarily signifies a trial in which man has a free choice of being faithful or unfaithful to God, as a secondary meaning, the temptation signifies the allurement or seduction to sin.

“Keep Glazed” is a sweet sin captured in a perfume bottle, the fifth olfactive creation in the Colorful Collection by THoO perfumes. The perfume was created in collaboration with pastry chef Ksenia Penkina, and unites two crafts – the pastry-making and the perfume-making.

Gourmand creations have always had their game on and have never left a person passing by emotionless. Meanwhile, THoO Patisserie specializes in tortes for modern taste-makers, “Keep Glazed” is an alluring tribute to the French pastry and the colonies conquered back in the day. The olfactive attraction of the exotic, wild desires and the seduction of the light, sweet, almost naive femininity as Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette. A controversial historical female figure trapped in a system constructed by men and royal arrangements, her tiny frilly moments of rebellion are sweet and inspiring, just as Ladurée macaroons. Antoinette is also famous for her declaration: “Let them eat cake,” which gives a meaning of indulging into sweets as an act of personal freedom, a minute of liberation that no one can steal, no one can own, no one can control. “Keep Glazed” is tasty and playful, just as Coppola’s lady Marie, who could wear Manolo Blahniks and Converse, have a lover and drip into the sweet side of life whenever she wanted to do so.

The recipe of this irresistible dessert has been signed, sealed and delivered by perfumers Andrea Cassoti and Cristian Calabro, using the same ingredients as those of Ksenia’s pastry. Each confectioner guards the secrets of his or her recipes as each master perfumer, and they both are the masters of the ceremony of olfactory suggestions to excite and create new sensations. 

“Keep Glazed” is a fragrance that arouses the sympathy for the devil and flirts with our sweet tooth, it awakens the weakness towards sweet temptation one cannot resist… Even Oscar Wilde knew this to say: “I can resist anything, except temptation.”

Keep calm, keep glazed, and let them eat cake!
