ASIAN TALES:The Art of Writing through Fragrance & Serenity
|Monet Bridge Lily Pond|
It brings me great delight to review the latest and most extravagant collection by the house of Kilian.
I received my deluxe samples of ASIAN TALES by Kilian yesterday. It arrived in the most distinguished packaging of black and silver.
I was so impressed with the story behind two fragrances that define and relish in the history of Chinese Calligraphy and the most stable and serene plant of the bamboo.
I wondered how owner and founder of "Kilian" himself Kilian Hennessey could top his previous collection with the most climatic ending to a novel of fragrances with "Sweet Redemption" that has become one of the most beloved fragrances of all times thanks to the sensational perfumer, Calice Becker.
ASIAN TALES comes to me in a quiet and serene statement. It isn't bold but it holds it own with delicate and sweet cascades of dripping leaves of bamboo with intricate drops of harmonious notes of nature, while sipping a cup of white tea. I was able to compose a letter from the heart and soul that makes writing simply spiritual with sweet and poetic water lilies floating in a pond.
ASIAN TALES consist of two elegant and divine fragrances which are BAMBOO HARMONY and WATER CALLIGRAPHY.
These scents take you into another world of ancient Chinese history that books can only provide a glimpse of serenity but experiencing and wearing these scents at a quiet moment will give you an actual scene that you see and feel.
BAMBOO HARMONY comes with notes of bergamot, bigarde and neroli, white tea leaves, mimosa, spices, fig leaves and oak moss
WATER CALLIGRAPHY enhances BAMBOO HARMONY as I used it in a combining mode and WATER CALLIGRAPHY gives you all the essences and notes of grapefruit, raseda blossom, jasmine sambac, magnolia, cardamom and vetiver.
This joint venture is the beginning of a beautiful oasis and another novel of scents to reach beyond the obvious but it nurtures your entire being with a soft and dewy scent that gives you that spring renewal of quietness, pure water, plants and most importantly- peace.
Note: BAMBOO HARMONY and WATER CALLIGRAPHY composed by Master Perfumer, Calice Becker.
