THE TIME is a moment, a fleeting instant of presence, of awareness within ourselves. It is the lucid consciousness of living ourselves and of intensely experiencing a moment that we share with the most authentic, profound part of ourselves. To which we offer care and respect, in a ritual rich with gratitude, like the Japanese tea preparation ceremony.
THE TIME sets its inner clock to 5 in the afternoon and that’s where it slows down: silence spins the minutes out and instils a sense of security. Time tightens its grip and allows us the luxury of observing how things flow, in a profound understanding of events both within us and without.
THE TIME is time for ourselves. Time that lasts an instant, a day or a whole lifetime.
This composition is an invitation to practise introspection: the prelude is Bergamot in an accord with Camomile and the calm of Wormwood, whose warm, woody note shields and reassures. Blue Tea, Iris and Verbena are the throbs of a heart that does not mark the passing of time, but expands it to infinity, wrapping us in a dimension of care and respect. With the expressive force of Cedarwood, Musks and Amber, the base receives the precious, dynamising notes of Black Tea.
