Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles, 1992. Nirvana’s leader, Kurt Cobain shocks the MTV Music Awards by playing a few, unplanned chords; this will mark this generation’s rebellion towards an establishment which censored its freedom of expression.


Black Powder is an unexpected olfactory melody made of interrupted sounds, full volume and contrasting notes; powerful like a bullet hitting the prissy and homogenized side of a society which is unable to understand Nirvana’s social poetry. It’s a bold and daring sound, born from guitars playing in Seattle’s garages.On a leather accord, Julien Rasquinet sculpts loud blackcurrant notes and rebellious pimento notes, in his unique and powerful style. Crispy apple hints convey the romantic and bohemian side of Kurt Cobain’s soul, exploding into an intense, deep, mysterious and sensual fragrance.

Blackcurrant, crispy apple, pimento

Suede, tobacco leaves, frankincense

Sandalwood, Tonka beans, patchouli heart


Black Powder is Generation X’s stifled scream, embodied by Kurt Cobain and Nirvana’s rebellious and epic sound, which is able to give voice to the emotional revolution of this urban tribe.


Seattle, hub of a cultural melting pot, gave birth to one of the most extraordinary music phenomenons in rock history. It is the evolution of Seattle’s music traditions: in the garages, from the hardest rock, Grunge is born. Rough melodies created in underground areas express this generation’s uneasiness. Nirvana’s lyrics exude the existential angst that Kurt Cobain used to express by turning folk melodies into visionary and toxic musical idioms, a constant rhythm where sweet memories alternate with regrets through acoustic laments.
