Where am I? Am I still dreaming or is it reality?
Dreams tells of that moment suspended between the dream and real life, that moment in which our mind and our heart are still in a distant place and we feel lost, confused, as if suspended...
With Sogni I told about my love for Japan, the memories of past trips, my passion for Kawabata's literature, Kurosawa's films and bonsai. I tried to tell a new story with a woody and warm scent, my Japanese dream.
One day, a long time ago, I thought and dreamed of being able to create a perfect woody perfume, where the different woods told of time, the flow of life itself, once again a challenge, a perfume that could be unique, exciting and engaging.
Dreams is the realization of my desire, an immediate experience, incredibly close to reality and the nature of things. Aesthetic devotion to nature.
The opening of Dreams is Tatami wood and Japanese pine needles, we are in an ancient ryokan in Kyoto and the rain has stopped falling. A warm bowl of rice is next to us, it reminds us of the simplicity of life, its purity. Attention brings to our nose the green, clear and transparent note of a bamboo forest, the flowery note of Peony is instead an exciting haiku. An instant that preludes the awakening of our soul from the dream. Finally, the lights of this dawn envelop the woody notes of Sandalwood, Cedar and the typical accord of the Kodo ritual, incense.
A journey into the beauty of Japanese harmony.
