TEMPERANCE is the virtue that moderates one’s desires. It bestows equilibrium on our being. Those who possess temperance relish in life, but never falling into excess. Temperance is will over instinct that finds fulfillment in well-earned moments of freedom.
Grapefruit is a bold accent at the outset of this scent, signaling a decisive action. After this decision, balance is struck; pepper, ginger and berries create a shimmering, sweet, translucent luminescence that evokes the beauty of self-imposed order and its resulting clarity. The heart of TEMPERANTIA illustrates the passions that drive this discipline. Sensual jasmine, wild French violet and romantic Turkish rose emulate the three points of love and desire. As this floral core seethes with emotion, it is supported (and tempered) by a firm base that belies the duality of our dreams in reality. Earthy vetiver, downy musk, saline amber and potent patchouli evoke the weightless landing of aspirations pursued with regular dedication. TEMPERANTIA is a bountiful, flowing bouquet that tirelessly navigates the space between holding on and letting go. Like a dance, this scent is truly freeing. TEMPERANTIA reminds us to commit to dare, to know ourselves.
