For Black Powder, Julien Rasquinet has played with a leathery accord, as provocative, audacious and bohemian as the attitude of Kurt Cobain. The result is an intense, deep, sensual and mysterious scent.
The Inspiration – Grunge Icon – Kurt Cobain
At the end of the 80’s a kind of Institutional incompetence led to several political crises, mostly affecting the United States. Moreover emerging technology made handheld devices available while exposure to music television brought different cultures into daily life. This period marks the emergence of the so-called Generation X and the birth of ?Urban tribe’ culture. Gen Xers were pushed toward adulthood, forced to spend less time with their parents. They were home alone, taking care of themselves and their siblings. Autonomy and self-reliance attitude led young people to find and receive emotional support more likely from friends than family and committed relationships, creating a sort of ?Urban tribe’. The uncertainty of the future and confusion related to developing meaningful intimacy often caused depression and anxiety, giving rise to alcohol and drug abuse. A talented yet troubled grunge performer, Kurt Cobain, became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band, Nirvana, and was labelled “the spokesman of Generation X”. Cobain, indeed, was often uncomfortable and frustrated, believing his message and artistic vision could be misinterpreted by the public, showing difficulties coping with his fame and public image, and the professional and personal pressures surrounding him.
Everything in the world of JUSBOX is inspired by music, even the packaging. The squared, modern, elegant, ergonomic bottle is a 78 ml to pay homage to the first phonographic disc that was 78 rpm. On its top, the cap celebrates the most well known auditory mean in the history of music: the vinyl. The rigid soft touch box is similar as shape and opening to a CD box. Inside you will find a leaflet that explains the inspiration and mood of each perfume.
