    "The distinction between past, present, and future
    is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."

    ~ Albert Einstein

    Past, present and future are intertwined.

    The present is shaped by what we have experienced in the past; what we are experiencing now is affecting the future. 

    It’s all about memory. 
    We carry the memory from the past to live at any moment.

    Scent can revive memories that have been long forgotten. 
    Do you really believe the memory retrieved was something actually happened?
    Sometimes your memory may be blurry or even differ from time to time.
    Now that, is the picture in your memory real or just an illusion?

    We design the scent to create the vibe, let you fall into the illusion.


    In parallel with the reality “past, present, and future”, 
    we should allow ourselves to have a brief respite:
    to fantasize the characters from the story tales coming to live to comfort us
    to fantasize there are always miracles amongst us
    to fantasize we are living in utopia which everything is just perfect
    This is not escaping from the real world but relax from the pressures from daily life.

    • a very personal journey, searching for that pinch of memory in one's mind. The result might differ from time to time, affected by one’s emotion. Each journey will be unique, even with what has already happened.

    • we can be dragged by the past & attracted to the future
      THIS moment is your present
      You are the one who define THIS
      Let’s embrace THIS present

    • sometimes one can create a whole new experience;
      sometimes one can just experience the past again.

    • one’s imagination unrestricted by reality
      the freedom to fantasize is a sanctuary for soul from daily life.

      lie on the floating cloud
      hugged by the fluffy cloud
