attentiveness

your guide on the way

to your perfume

My name is Irena Kozelská and I have been interested in perfumes, perfumery and sensory perception for more than twenty years.

 

It would be probably appropriate to mention here the education qualifying me for the job of a perfume guide. But, right now, there is no such a course. I worked originally as a translator and interpreter and I have always loved beauty and language, the beauty of language and the language of beauty.

My tools are a keen eye for beauty and the ability to put beauty into words, my customers people and fragrances. You and scents. I help you understand each other, find each other, blend.

If you wish to smell authentically, I will translate your soul into scent.

about synestesis

The project Synestesis was born of a great love for beauty and a great desire to make your life more beautiful: touch your emotions through scents.

It took me a long time to muster the courage and follow this calling. Perfumes are often seen as a dispensable superficiality, and show them as an art, a remedy, a path to yourself seemed like a mountain I would never be able to climb.

Nonetheless today, thanks to Synestesis, there is something which I believe has lacked until now in the perfume landscape: a bridge between the beauty made by perfumers and a human being seeking a way to reach it. By means of individual consultations, group workshops and writing about perfumes Synestesis accompanies each to other: an individual to a scent, a scent to an individual.

meaning

my philosophy

I believe that perfume is a form of art and it has its own character just as a human being.

 

I believe that the power of personality lies in authenticity, and when the character of a person resonates with the character of a perfume, something magical is about to happen.

I believe that good things need to mature and giving time and space to senses makes sense.

 

I believe that a human being understands another human being best and empathy creates the truest connection.

I believe that real transformations are set in motion by emotions.
