Film with Jean-Michel Duriez of Jean Patou


Sacré Nobi has published a short film made for a campaign for Lexus ES 350, called “The Science of Desire”. The film revolves around Jean-Michel Duriez, the in-house perfumer for Jean Patou. If you recall my article about Jean Patou cocktail bar, you would be able to see the bar and the famous Monclin glasses used by the perfumer.

  • minette: thanks for sharing this. it was beautifully photographed! i got to interview Jean-Michel when he was here, and he was so sweet. would love to conduct another interview with him on his home turf. that closing shot of him on the bridge is just gorgeous. August 3, 2006 at 2:44pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Minette, I recall that interview, which was very interesting (in a Houston publication, right?)

    I also love that closing shot. August 3, 2006 at 7:42pm Reply

  • Anya: What an absolutely lovely little ad! You can rarely say that about an ad, but this was a little gem. He seems wonderful, and it’s too bad he couldn’t make the FF panel discussion in June. He’s so grounded and articulate, must sniff some of his perfumes to get the full picture!

    Minette, your interview was wonderful, I believe I commented on it previously on some blog or forum and clicked through to help traffic to encourage your employers to feature more interviews like that in the future. 😉 August 4, 2006 at 10:14am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Anya, and a Lexus ad no less! I watched it a few times. Yes, it was disappointing that Jean-Michel could not make it to the panel. Perhaps, some other time. August 8, 2006 at 1:58pm Reply
