The Five Seasons. Magic and Irony
08/11/2019 - Alessi's exploration into the fascinating universe of home fragrances continues. The world of splendours extolling nature, created in 2018 by the versatile Marcel Wanders with “The Five Seasons”, returns to surprise with elements dedicated to the sun, the moon and flowers.

'There is magic in the way that a scent manages to transport us elsewhere, in space and time', observes the Dutch architect. Words, sensations, emotions, images evoked by the designer are translated into new components: two fragrances, “Ohhh” and “Uhhh”, two leaf-shaped diffusers in the colours of gold and silver, and the incense burner “Lily". Smell, touch, sight and ... irony, are the factors that unite the aesthetics of the entire collection. The Five Seasons_ph Studio Wanders

Inspired by the energy of the sun and the warmth of gold, “Ohhh” is a full, masculine and wild fragrance. A burst of vitality lights up with notes of bergamot and mandarin to form a peppery heart and a finish of tobacco, vanilla and musk. Spicy and lively “Ohhh” awakens the senses like an overwhelming and vibrant dance. The Five Seasons

Pure as water and as magical as the moon, “Uhhh” is dedicated to the feminine universe. Its charm comes from marine evocations, fresh and relaxing. A combination of mandarin and coriander reveals a heart of ylang ylang and a tempting finish in sandalwood and musk. A toning fragrance like a dip under a starry sky on a summer night.

The leaf-shaped Diffuser in mahogany is the key element of the collection. The porcelain container, coloured gold for the “Ohhh” fragrance and silver for “Uhhh”, is circular with a slightly rounded base. The leaves that emanate the essence and vary depending on the fragrance, are in Sapelli mahogany, chosen for its porosity and for the colour that highlights the silhouette of the design. The leaf-shaped diffuser is combined with a 150 ml bottle of essence. It lasts for two to three months, depending on the temperature and humidity of the room. The Five Seasons

With the Incense Burner, the designer captures the spirit of the ancient tradition of perfuming rooms with aromas or resins by designing a small furnishing element with a poetic allure. “Lily” has the shape and harmony of the calla flower. The goblet, produced in steel, holds the incense stick available in three fragrances.
