L’ Elegant is inspired by the famous
painting, Portrait of Pierre Seriziat by Jacques-Louis David.
Pierre Sériziat as a lawyer appears as a
country gentleman sitting on a rock with an elegant pose. His frock coat and
the leather pants are of English fashion style. The painter's basic idea is to
capture a moment of truth representative of the country life of the Sériziats’.
The cloudy sky in the background is a rarity and perhaps unique in David's
MDCI's Painters and Perfumers collection has
four bottles of mens‘ perfume, each creation is inspired by important
historical paintings. According to the founder Claude Marchal, this series of
work took him 4 years from drafting his concepts to actually launching the
collection. Three bottles of men's fragrance are first launched: L' Homme aux gants (man wearing gloves), Cuir
Cavalier (knight leather), and Bleu Satin (blue satin boy).
