I met Jean-Paul Gaultier at Eurovision’s final backstage. I was so impressed to hear that a true fashion legend likes my vocal performance and staging, especially the appearance of the piano at the beginning. What else do you need if you’ve been supported by such amazing talents like Jean Paul Gaultier or Verka Serduchka through this Eurovision journey? Not to mention my devoted fans all over Europe, who gave me so much support, and I will never forget it.

A bit of Black Gas

Besides music, MÉLOVIN has created his own signature scent, Black Gas, available as a limited edition. The artists’ debut perfume contains notes of green strawberry, chocolate, black coffee, fiery ginger, black oud (agarwood oil) and ambergris. The unisex fragrance is described as:
The formula of the debut fragrance was developed personally by MÉLOVIN on the full moon night. Perfume for strong and self-confident personalities! (…) Mysterious, languid, warm, intriguing, recognizable, niche.
