Fragrances are accompanied by movies and poetic Journal, both in six Acts:

ACT I

Act I – Awakenings – Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, January 2017

It’s early morning. R. It must be, R. I have unlearned what I’ve learned. Over the square as the snow falls, I see only summer and complexity. With every flake and how to achieve such beauty. I’m closer now. Loosing sleep to mere, feeling, being. I walk the sunrise, in silence. What if I dare to travel? And does it have to be physically?

ACT II

Act II – Redefining Alchemy – Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, February 2017

It’s late by candlelight. What if, the ingredients are all wrong? The thinking to narrow? I see no limitations outside of my realm of thought. I’ve come to discover poetry, leading me back to my childhoods blossoming gardens and discovered that by including what I remember is method. What if I could remember the future? My heart accepts no compromises.

ACT III

Act III – The In-Between – Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, March 2017

In my room. Last night, visions. A place begging no space. Womb like where being is growth. Existence. I remained for a while and took with me, everything. As I came to, the smell of roses. So powerful it was nauseating. Ever changing, evolving scents. I fear no evil in search for light, no darkness is dark enough. The work continues.

ACT IV

Act IV – Purgatory – Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, April 2017

The lake. What gates have I opened? One door leads to another, then another. Small chambers of definitive beauty pass me by. Some, I wouldn’t dare to describe. Endless rows of spaces. I pick ingredients from each and everyone. Will this take forever. Is it a forever journey? I must find out for it is exhilarating. I must deepen the work. Beckoning is but a memory. I’m inside now.

ACT V

Act V – A letter – Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, April 2017

The study, noon. It didn’t come through regular channels. Not written in words. Walking through the park, as if by magic, the smell of trees. Would you believe? Intoxicated by nature I was filled with emotions. I was out the other side. Release. I can read now. I know my recipe is right, what it takes and I’m willing. A deeper knowledge, one warm embrace, my undying quest.

ACT VI

Act VI part I and II – Minor setback and giant revelation

Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, May 2017

The fire station. They are kind here and I know better now. The In-Between, so volatile. Careful to not cut corners. A charlatan I am not. New quarters give me moments of relief, yet demands more focus. At night I dream of flames. Temperatures. Increased passion to ignite, conduct. Achieve revelation. The embodiment of my work I bring from the In-Between. Accidental? Oh, a most fortunate disaster. Time is moving faster.

Laurent Mazzone, Grenoble, the very next day

The laboratory. I am one with what I have been lead to create. I am surrounded by it. It is complete. I remain home. I love harder now.
