Long before Proust's madeleine or modern discoveries of its intimate connection in the brain to memory and emotion, smell held an important place in many cultures for thousands of years. Considered a second-tier sense with the violent upheavals of modernity, it is perhaps for the very reason that it can be neither seen nor heard that fragrance has such important functions within various traditions of spiritual and religious practice.
With products designed specifically for many of the different spaces we inhabit on a daily basis, since 2009, Tokyo-based retaW have sought to touch all aspects of life with scent. Their broad range of products—from car air freshener to room spray to candles—are developed with the latest dermatological innovations in mind and imbued with a selection of purposefully developed fragrances, each of which is designed to conjure what is most elemental—retaW is water, backwards, after all.
While imbuing interior spaces with fragrance is far from a new practice, retaW's range of Room Sprays provide a novel way to do so. Burning candles or incense are perfect ways of indulging in scent as one unwinds at the end of a day, particularly given the dynamic allure of smoke or flame, ancient sources of soft fascination. but if you're starting your day, or looking to invigorate a space with an energetic aromatic impulse at any time, they can't always deliver. retaW Fragrance Room Sprays supply an instant aromatic mist to enliven the space of your choosing, be it your workspace trying to break from an afternoon slump, your dining room before a dinner party, or simply your bedroom just after waking in the morning.
Coming in a presentable black and white glass bottle encased in cylindrical packaging, the Fragrance Room Spray is ready to take pride of place in your chosen space, ready for use at any time.
A symbol of both refinement and excess, at once light and intense, champagne embodies numerous contradictions. Nodding at the top of retaW's Evelyn fragrance with hints of orange and lemon for company, the scent of champagne revels in its impudence. Base notes of berry and musk create a dynamic backdrop, adding further vivacity while simultaneously clouding the scene. Middle tones of Jasmine soften any acerbity present, pulling the fragrance together without effacing its fruity, effervescent core.
