Embracing the wisdom of ancient Chinese healing
With the experience of living in China [Beijing] for the past 7 years, we came to adopt ancient Chinese philosophies and principles, the idea of harmony of the natural order, an ancient wisdom that is reflected in our concept and expressed in a new contemporary way, mixing eastern and western values.

Scent guide / Find out What's your favorite...
We created 2 signature scents using a selection of elements that mirror female and masculine components and energies that we all have within us, exploring ancient concepts of duality, yin and yang, stillness and movement, light and dark.
This unity is the understanding and acceptance of both sides. Knowing that one cannot exist without the other is how our opposing scents were created:
氣 CHI and 道 DAO
/ flowery components of white lotus and jasmine flower
/ light + sensual, female fragrant w/ an essence of exotic blossoms, powdery and soft
/ warm, masculine scent with fresh + aromatic woody notes
/ earthly elements of china cedar, pine and bergamot, together with deeply grounding and comforting notes of sandalwood in the base note
