The French word sillage means the wake left in the water by a sailing ship. In the context of scent, sillage is described as a trail of perfume lingering in the air after a person has left. The train of a dress, a peacock’s tail, an invisible track. Right behind you. SILLAGE is composed like a photography with a long exposure time. What for the human eye is a point, becomes a line in the eye of the lens.
