There Is A Furor Within Me

Serge Lutens

There is a furor within me.
I have used creativity as a means of distancing myself from
the world, from society. I doubt calm will ever be restored
because I have reached a place where I will be swallowed up.
To battle upstream would be to counter
the very principle of creation, but it would also imply
I am prepared to sink lower, or take a fall,
and ultimately meet my end.

Because this would also mean a rebirth, moving on
to other things… Creating is my driving force,
my obsession. It would be wrong to say it is my profession.
I am not a paid-up member of any profession,
I have created my own.

It is a faith, I invented it! These perfumes are
my body and soul, my story, experiences which
take hold of me with all their force.
This is the reality of a perfume. It is all about identity.
