Al Kimiya - 'Ilm
"'Ilm" is the Islamic term for knowledge. It describes the study and the development of science in the golden age of Islam. During the 7th to 13th centuries the Islamic countries developed into a great civilization characterized by art, culture and science: medicine, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, alchemy, literature, philosophy and music were at the forefront.
'Ilm" is an extrait de parfum, which consists of three different ouds. The head is a matured Indian Assam Oud, the oud in the heart is from Bangladesh and in the base we find oud from Laos. The result is a clear, oriental oud creation which, through its direct and straightforward style, brilliantly embodies the pursuit of knowledge and perception.
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).
