Al Kimiya - Elixir
Elixir also known as the “Elixir of Life” or “Elixir of Immortality” is often equated with the fabled Philosopher's Stone. In various cultures there has always been the idea of such a powerful potion that, if properly prepared and taken at the right time, would give eternal life and eternal youth.
The clear liquid of Al Kimiya’s "Elixir" is a precious and highly concentrated Attar perfume oil that has a strong character and is clearly indicates the Orient. For Western noses the combination of different flowers, balsamic notes such as copahu balsam, labdanum and gurjun balsam along with juniper, nagarmotha and agarwood may seem a bit unusual at first. This result is a balsamic, but also animalic impression.
Al Kimiya is an influential philosophical tradition from antiquity: The magic science of transformation. The creation of unique perfumes out of rare natural raw elements through unique distillation techniques.
"Qimiya from the ancient Greek word chyméia and ancient Arabic Al-Kimiya”
Alchemy is an influential philosophical tradition whose practitioners have, from antiquity, claimed it to be the precursor to profound powers. Perfume as we know it could not have taken shape without alchemy, the ancient art that undertook to convert raw matter in to perfect purified form.
In this sense, it straddles the line between the tangible and the intangible, the earthly and the ethereal, the real and the magical. Islamic philosophers also made great contributions to alchemical hermeticism. The most influential author in this regard was arguably Jãbir (Abū Mūsā Dschābir ibn Hayyān).
