Pain & pleasure, faith & fear.
The sense of pained profound love. Contrasting feelings like pain and pleasure, faith and fear. Sweetness and bitterness, warmth and danger, softness and extremeloneliness. A love similar to a religious experience full of devotion and suffering. Love as an addiction. Sometimes an impossible love, maybe an unrequited love. This troubled woman in love is very attractive as she displays all her doubts and vulnerability; she wears it on her skin. In her fragility lies devotion and enormous strength. We wish to be him, but we may not wish to be her; her desire, however, is irresistible.

About Maria Lux:
Maria L is the abbreviation of Maria Lux. She is the designer's muse, her perfect alter ego. Maria as virgin, mother, lover. Lux stands for light, luxury, and lust. The 'L' is for Lilian Driessen, designer and creative director.
The house creates anarchic, tailored elegance and raw luxury. A concept adapted into all products developed, executed, and produced with care and love by masters of their craft. Everything is approached with personal attention. The Maria Lux team searches for exclusivity, privacy, and delicacy in a thoughtful, but informal manner. The perfumes are inspired by love, the most complex, by far most important, human emotion that never will materialize itself.
