I tried to tell a new story with a warm woody perfume, my Japanese dream.
One day, a long time ago, I thought or dreamed of being able to create a perfect woody perfume where the different woods would tell the story of time, of the passing of life itself, again a challenge, a perfume that could be unique, exciting, and involving.
Sogni is the realization of my desire, an immediate experience, incredibly close to reality and the nature of things. Aesthetic devotion to nature.
The opening notes of Sogni are a Tatami, wood, and Japanese pine needles; we are in an ancient ryokan in Kyoto, and the rain has stopped falling. A bowl of hot rice is beside us to remind us of life's simplicity and purity. Our attention is brought to the nose by the green, clear, and transparent note of a bamboo forest; the flowery note of Peony is an emotional haiku. An instant that preludes the awakening of the 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.
"This perfume is dedicated to my great friend, Makoto Horisaki"
