Description

This year Deana has chosen to use the Special Edition to highlight young talent both from the field of perfumery and art. The ELEMENTALS Special Editions are linked to the wisdom of the I Ching. Otherwise known as the Book of Changes, this 4000 year old script reveals ancient wisdom that is applicable to the modern world.

Tong Ren speaks of how humanity has traversed turbulent times. It reveals the truth that differences originate from our similarities and vice versa. That now is the time to come together in harmony and a spirit of equality to promote peace and create something new and beautiful.

Tong Ren is a collaboration of three kindred souls who may come from totally different backgrounds, but whose serendipitous connection is the love of art and perfume.

Under Deana’s creative direction, the young perfumer, Alexandre Helwani, has created an all natural masterpiece that imparts a sense of abundant harmony that will likely disrupt the perceptions cast over natural perfumery. The beautiful crane, designed by artist Cristian Marianciuc embodies the five elements and the mystical virtues of this magical bird: Harmony, Healing and Hope.

The result is a luscious, perfectly harmonious blend of raw materials that embody the essence of the 13th Hexagram of the I Ching and give reverence to the mystical powers of the crane.

“I create the Special Editions to put a message for humanity out into the world. When I read this passage in the I Ching, I knew I needed to create something unique and I knew it needed to be a new kind of collaboration to honor the ancient text of Tong Ren.”
