Al Kimiya - Tempest
The Tempest is the most alchemically influenced of all William Shakespeare’s work, steeped as it is in alchemical imagery (dying Kings and sons, Ariel as the spirit Mercurius etc.) with Prospero as the archetypal Magus.
This princely Attar - a highly concentrated perfume oil - has a wide range of fragrance Impressions: Fresh citrus fruits such as bergamot and lemon join with spicy and herbaceous notes of lavender, ginger and elemi. The heart features woody and balsamic notes with a hint of rose and jasmine blossoms. The base is woody, earthy, but also soft with patchouly, sandalwood, vetiver, musk, ambergris and oud.
"Tempest" by Al Kimiya is a multifaceted composition that doesn’t become hard or too opulent and always retains a fresh, spicy ease.
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).
