13 years in the past, Meo Fusciuni launched into an olfactory analysis venture that mixed perfumery, herbalism, and botany, for a aromatic alchemy that has simply added a brand new cease in its journey: Sogni – the fragrance that can shut the Timeless Trilogy. La Trilogia Senza Tempo started with Varanasi, a sacred and profane place of scent, stuffed with distinction and meanings, impressed by a journey into India, born from the the visceral emotion Meo felt on the sacred waters of the Ganges; then he captured the treasured recollections of Laos – born from a second during which petals fell right into a cup of tea, a clear veil of hope and sublimated pleasure in Encore du temps.

“With Sogni I instructed of my love for Japan, my recollections of previous travels, my ardour for Kawabata’s literature, Kurosawa’s movies, and bonsai bushes. I attempted to inform a brand new story with a heat woody fragrance, my Japanese dream. Someday, a very long time in the past, I assumed or dreamed of having the ability to create an ideal woody fragrance, the place the completely different woods would inform the story of time, of the passing of life itself, once more a problem, a fragrance that might be distinctive, thrilling, and involving. Sogni is the conclusion of my want, a direct expertise, extremely near actuality and the character of issues. Aesthetic devotion to nature. A journey into the fantastic thing about the Japanese harmony” – Meo Fusciuni, 2023
If writing about music is like dancing about structure, then, possibly, writing about fragrance is like attempting to seize the essence of a dream in phrases. A dream you’re given a glimpse of, by way of an ephemeral window. Sogni (desires) opened up a dream of Japan and I stepped in. And for a second there I’m, morphed into Shimamura, my finger drawing a secret window to any individual else’s desires.

“However he had been dreaming, and when he got here to himself he noticed that it was solely the reflection within the window of the lady reverse. Outdoors it was rising darkish, and the lights had been turned on within the prepare, remodeling the window right into a mirror. Within the depths of the mirror, the night panorama moved by, the mirror and the mirrored figures like movement footage superimposed one on the opposite. The figures and the background had been unrelated, and but the figures, clear and intangible, and the background, dim within the gathering darkness, melted collectively right into a form of symbolic world, not of this world. Notably when a lightweight out within the mountains shone within the middle of the lady’s face, Shimamura felt his chest rise on the inexpressible great thing about it. The mountain sky nonetheless carried traces of night purple. Particular person shapes had been clearly far into the gap, however the monotonous mountain panorama, undistinguished for mile after mile, appeared all of the extra undistinguished for having misplaced its final traces of coloration. There was nothing in it to catch the attention, and it appeared to circulate alongside in a large, unformed emotion. That was in fact as a result of the lady’s face was floating over it. Reduce off by the face, the night panorama moved steadily by round its outlines. The face too appeared clear—however was it actually clear?” Snow Nation – Yasunari Kawabata
Photos transfer earlier than my eyes, like clouds hovering above the solar, felt – not seen by way of the closed eyelids. By means of the window, in quick succession, a forest dances. Branches of inexperienced bushes transfer within the wind like inexperienced waters earlier than a sea storm, arms slowly stretching, inexperienced lungs respiratory within the cool vegetal scent. It feels resinous, camphorous, fragrant, and blunt, the type of deep inexperienced one can scent solely after heavy rain.

By means of the bamboo,
the wind of summer season,
you’ll be right here subsequent yr. -Meo Fusciuni
Quickly after, we transfer to the beige woody cocoon of a ryokan, away from the rain, in a quiet room, suspended in time, in full stillness. There isn’t a time outdoors of time on this dream, for time has folded upon itself, like a Tatami mat that covers and muffles any step. Smells of frozen time, dried hay, aged straw mats, and eternity.
Outdoors, a lightweight inexperienced forest with skinny, tall, clear inexperienced bamboo bushes, with a slim path of rain-drenched earth drawing the traveler into an imponderable labyrinth. The trail narrows and rounds on the edges, with a white foggy white milky promise drawing close to. It’s now nearly candy, nearly spherical, like inhaling a pure, easy pleasure: a heat steaming bowl of rice.

The Kodo ritual* can start. Positioned within the ashes, the wooden chips begin to mingle their smoke within the night air, elevating in full stillness and silence. Pay attention* to it – it’s whispered and candy, now it tells of lengthy forgotten bitter secrets and techniques, and shortly it is going to flip silky, like a peony petal-turned-to- gown embracing the pores and skin. The legal guidelines of physics have been halted and you’ll transfer your palms, freely, by way of the nervures of the wooden.
Gradual steps alongside the way in which,
I trample leaves now purple.
Time, I assumed was over
I mild incense. –Meo Fusciuni
* Kōdō, translated as “manner of the perfume” is the artwork of appreciating Japanese incense, being one of many three classical Japanese arts of refinement, together with kadō/ ikebana for flower association, and chadō/sadō for the tea ceremony.

Meo prefers to be referred to as “aromatorio”, not a nostril or perfumer, with a time period coming from outdated apothecaries of the previous, describing an individual who had natural data and the suitable manner to make use of spices and medicinal crops. In Sogni, we’ve the alchemical recipe for deconstructing a dream, and re-building it, utilizing DNA sequences of crops interwoven with REM frames from a world constructed from recollections, for a outcome that’s poetic, cohesive, and probably the most stunning aromatic homages to the essence of Japan.
