Qi (pronounced “key” or “chi”) means Breath of Life. An ancient word that permeates the Chinese language and everyday life, this perfume is inspired by the Chinese people’s love for the lightest and most delicate scents. Qi is constructed to make no great statement: inoffensive, it aims not to tear down walls but to create a more natural effect, like the rejuvenating pleasures of beholding an amazing dawn, or the soft caress of a slightly scented fragile breeze.
Green lemon blossom and freesia engineer a cool purity, delightful against the relatively pungent sweetness of osmanthus, hedione and violet; the tannic scratch of tea notes and mate etch out a basic melody around which light, ethereal notes swirl, conducted into perfect harmony by the organizing, earthbound force of stronger notes (musk, moss and myrrh). An honest, open and ingenuous perfume, its mark is intended for those who eschew the obvious in favor of a small, subtle ornament.
