Inspired by moments in the film by Mathieu Kassovitz.
ARTISTICALLY EXPLOSIVE AND POLITICALLY DISRUPTIVE - THE NEW CINEMA FRAGRANCE, LA HAINE.
A contemporary black-and-white masterpiece directed by Mathieu Kassovitz. The film is set in a banlieue (government housing project) outside of Paris. In 24 hours, the movie provides a passage way into the lives of a mixed-race young male trio consumed with the hatred fueled by police brutality and racial conflict. The fragrance was created to capture specific moments of aggression and tension in the film with smells of a cold blade, polished gun steel and the burning from riots and rubber from drive-by shootings. Built around these elements are the scents of concrete and the septic environmental smells that fill the walls of government housing projects.
