The five seasons
Marcel Wanders – Alessi – 2018
Associate Creative Director
The scents of Alessi Home Fragrances, represent the transformative, cyclical seasons of life and nature – from blossoming to decay and the mystery of celestial bodies. The Five Seasons collection is a love song to nature, which is celebrated through the domestic recreation of the four seasons: from the regeneration that follows the cold winter and the blossoming of nature in the spring, to the full flowering of the summer and the harvesting of autumn fruits. A “special” fragrance offers a spiritual bouquet that connects to your mysterious inner dimension. Also included is a rocking forest oil diffuser, a lava natural stone diffuser, a scented candle that radiates nature’s wonderful aroma, a room spray and even a bottle stopper, candleholder and candle snuffer.
Crucial part of this project, was defining the fragrance with the supplier. Here few examples based on the images below:
Wood stick dispenser: vibrant, hearty, warm and inviting, just like a luxuriously enveloping summer bouquet, “Hmm” opens with a blend of figs, blackcurrant and davana, which transforms into a bold heart of berries, tomato leaves, cyclamen and coconut milk before closing with woody and musky notes. A wonderful journey that reveals the beauty of the most luxuriant of the seasons.
Lava stone diffuser: this special and with its distinctive black colour, is mysterious, spiritual and transcendental. “Shhh” communicates with our souls through fleeting hints of eucalyptus and cloves that open into enchanting rose. Notes of cedar wood, patchouli, sandal and fine woods bring an immersive and contemplative dimension to its finish.
Room spray: inspired by glinting ice crystals, the crisp atmosphere of winter and brilliant white snowscapes, “Brrr” is a mature, fresh and vibrant fragrance. The orange and bergamot top notes blend into the notes of lily of the valley and cedar wood before closing in the sensual embrace of musk and amber. “Brrr” is a bubbly and bright fragrance for every room.
