Martial RAYSSE: Démocratie. Eau de Toilette pour Homme. 1970.

 

Martial RAYSSE: Démocratie. Eau de Toilette pour Homme



Multiple. Object.
Eau de toilette for men in a cylindrical flask of transparent glass.
Blue plastic stopper in shape of a human chest ("une forme en liberte") and blue, white and green stripes on the side.
The stopper reads on one side: "Démocratie, Eau de toilette pour Homme de Martial Raysse", silkprinted in white. On the bottom, date and publisher's name and address.
In its origin carboard display box, with a small transparent Rhodoid window, with two mounted labels of silvered paper reading the same text, printed in white.
Bottle and stopper: 13 x 8 cm.
Box: 14 x 11.1 x 9.7 cm.
Unspecified edition size. Claude Givaudan, Geneva, Switzerland, 1970.

Démocratie was created on the occasion of the show at Galerie Claude Givaudan: "Les Editions Claude Givaudan presentent: les Parfums de Matial Raysse, des modèles de Catherine Carrara", 7 July 1970.
This scent is unique, specially created for Martial Raysse for this piece. The fragrance is a strong smell of sweat. Martial Raysse created ironically this "democratic" perfume, the working people scent -the sweat- mocking at one of the major icons of luxe, the perfume, for the happy few.
Another ironic aspect of the story: ageing, the "sweat" scent has turned into a quite acceptable nice smelling.
