Kodo 香 道
The Way of Perfume
There are different ways to start the work of composing perfumes, but the spirit of it should be one: “Kodo“, the Way of Scent, the zen of perfume.
In the Hebrew mysticism all senses bring pleasure to the body except the sense of smell which gives pleasure to the soul.
In the sufi way each “state” is associated with a fragrance, and in semitic languages the word “nice smelling” (Tayyib) is a synonym for the word “good”.
