Water

The water element is feminine, the yin to fire’s yang.  When we think of water, sometimes the first image in our mind is the water we drink.  Odorless, colorless, tasteless.  But then our thoughts travel on, to rushing rivers, and waves crashing against a sandy beach, and ripples on a tree-encircled lake.  Then the colors appear:  the turquoise of a tropical sea, the deep blue of the Pacific, the mossy green of an alpine lake.

When I began to create a perfume that represents the water element, I imagined many different scenes and locations before using one in particular, and Lake was the result.  But each and every scenario made me feel a similar sense of being connected to emotion.  I think that’s why so many of us are drawn to bodies of water when we need to be alone, to think and feel in solitude, and to feel closer to mother nature.
