your guide on the way
to your perfume
My name is Irena and I have been interested in perfumes, perfumery and sensory perception for almost 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 language and beauty, the beauty of language and the language of beauty.
Language and eloquence are still my tool and people and fragrances are my customers. You and scents. I help you see and understand each other, blend.
If you tell me who you are, I will translate your soul into scent.
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 very 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 meditation, a path to yourself seemed like a mountain I would never be able to climb.
Nonetheless today 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 and group workshops and writing about perfumes Synestesis accompanies each to other: an individual to a scent, a scent to an individual.
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.
