Watch the ash fall. Let the oil slowly seep in.
Surrender to the passing of time.
Take delight as the fragrance gently envelops you,
Leaving an imprint in your memory.
Focus on the invisible fragrance.
Allow the complex world of fragrance to guide your senses.
Let it trigger a forgotten story from your past.
Witness how the fragrance takes on a visible form.
The tools are not just for function.
Their free and exquisite forms
Play a part in the sublime experience.
