EMPATHY is an olfactory description of a fleeting instant that words simply cannot encapsulate. While our eyes take in the garden’s colours, our thoughts and our steps suddenly slow down to a still shot of emotions and movements. EMPATHY tells the tale of what happens when two souls meet and instantly recognize each other. It’s like when you catch your breath: your eyes lock together. The silence that speaks reigns supreme, overcoming mere physical attraction to become energy.
The olfactory projection of silence
Like a musical pause in a score, EMPATHY tells the story of that moment of silence: it is a bubble of perfection where words are superfluous, because everything already speaks about itself. The colours fade, the wind dies down and tensions vanish: an emotional exchange takes place, becoming as continuous and fluid as water.
EMPATHY pays tribute to the nobility of soul of those of us who – in friendship as in love – give ourselves without reservation. In a world dominated by the emptiness of words and increasingly devoid of real presence, EMPATHY is a reset: it is a chance to settle down and listen to another’s soul, making a gift of our emotive attention. The result is a new awareness, as delicate and profound as the composition. The sweet notes of pear blossom in the head, inflamed by an infusion of raspberry, open up to a heart whose fruity hints of tobacco leaf win you over. What makes the woody, mossy finale even more refined is an elusive touch of scorched wood.
The Klem Garden Collection is expanding to take in a fifth fragrance: EMPATHY, a special edition that celebrates a magic moment experienced in an Arabian garden, suspended midway between dream and reality.
