AENOTUS, despite its high percentage of perfume oil, is not loud—and after an intense and fresh opening—transforms into a delicate scent, very close to the skin. Only those dear and near will be close enough to enjoy its subtle and intriguing character.
AENOTUS stands for ‘the notes of the winds blown by Aeolus’. In Greek mythology, Aeolus is the God of the winds who brings coolness to the South of Europe. In AENOTUS the cool notes of Aeolus are fusing with the soft, sensual warmth of the South. And the classic (Latin) ending of the word Aenotus suggests the depth and maturation of time.

Antoine Lie from Paris is well known for stepping in two apparently opposite worlds—the mainstream giant brands and smaller niche ones. For Puredistance Antoine created Puredistance AENOTUS, BLACK, WHITE and WARSZAWA. Mr. Vos and Antoine Lie regularly meet to discuss possible new Perfume projects and their collaboration so far has been very successful and enjoyable.
Antoine likes to create fragrances that are strong and directly convey the concept of the perfume, without following trends. He likes to explore new olfactive territories and searches for uncommon ingredients and uncommon associations that can intrigue new interests. On the other hand he likes to revisit the past (the 50s, 60s or 70s) and tries to modernize the classic trends of a certain era into new perfume.
Puredistance is one of the most exclusive Perfume Houses in the world that offers only Pure Perfume Extrait. They put all their passion and energy into the making of one truly beautiful Master Perfume at a time. Not just another perfume, but a Perfume with a soul and a signature.
