Luke Evans as Aramis (The Three Musketeers 2011). "Il exhala en entrant ce parfum délicat qui, chez les hommes élégants, chez les femmes du grand monde, ne change jamais, et semble s’être incorporé dans la personne dont il est devenu l’émanation naturelle.  Cette fois seulement le parfum avait retenu quelque chose de la sublimité religieuse de l’encens. Il n’enivrait plus, il pénétrait ; il n’inspirait plus le désir, il inspirait le respect." __Alexandre Dumas, Le Vicomte de Bragelonne
