All what we get is a moment, that’s a fragile instant between after & before. It’s mysterious, almost impossible to catch personification of Present. All our life is threading of moments. They are our pearls & sooner or later enter into the chain of our personal time. We appreciate these gems of existence, doing all our best to resurrect them by all means. However becoming our past, the moments-pearl undergo changes. That’s the mystery of our live: we experience a moment that may last only for some minutes and when we recall it in our memory, it’s always a story with its logical beginning & end, full of extraordinary details.
There are various hints to resurrect a moment: a vision, a sound, a word, a colour, a taste, but only the one is strongest & most bewitched: scent it is. The nature of fragrance is enigmatic itself. The world is full of aromas & whenever we re-experience them we bring back various events of our life in most brightest way. Fragrance has an enormous power upon living creatures. And since perfumery has been invented each of us is an alchemist of Present. It’s just enough to open a bottle & apply a drop or spray some charming liquid and voilà the machine of time has moved us to our past….or even to our future if the fragrance is prepared for an instance to come.
All regarding scents is extraordinary: a moment of purchasing, a moment of opening, a moment of applying and undoubtedly the part they play in an event they’re prepared for. I believe there are special fragrances, almost of Divine nature both by their formula & duration as well as there are ordinary ones, light & weak but still able to add a touch of elegance in our daily routine. In any case a fragrance is a travel though Time. In any case it is a real history created by ourselves.
