“Thus, the superior man consolidates his fate
by making his position correct.”
50, Ting. The Crucible. I Ching.
Athanor is carried by spiritual exploration. The fascination of the alchemist’s effort to search for and find ways to convert the plain and banal into beauty and a higher level. Spiritualty through mystique. That’s why Athanor came alive.
Athanor: The Crucible. The melting spot where metals meet and change. The burning flames underneath – Incendium Amoris – The Fire of Love. Like a living creature can change when exposed to the heat of life. For good or worse.
Interpretation of the alchemistic work through the nose:
A diffused heat, or rather a glow.
Human baseness begins to dissolve.
A translucent silver, cold but alive.
And then a vibrant gold is revealed behind the initial heat.
The result of the transformation.
Spiritual love that unites.
Listen to your nose. Always. Feel the Sulphur evaporating from the process. Giving way to a delicate body of saffron and flowers, finding its space between incense and precious wood. Let the Athanor enhance your personality and lead your way.
Athanor’s ambitious project has involved great artists and countless hours. After two years of dedicated craftmanship and cooperation the olfactory formulation was signed by Luca Maffei and acknowledged by Stefania Squeglia.
