TWO BECOME ONE
IN A WORLD FIRST, MASCULINE AND FEMININE UNITE
Experience the animalistic lust when the raw essences of ANIMA and ANIMUS fuse.
THE ESSENCE IS UNITY, A HARMONIOUS AND SYNERGISTIC WORLD FIRST AND THE RAW EMBODIMENT OF MAN AND WOMAN.
SO WHAT IS UNITY?
In this case, Unity is what happens when two fragrances are created to harmoniously enhance and complement each other.
When our Master Blender – Rhett Ogston – created the Anima and Animus perfumes, he created, blended and then bottled two very distinct scents that uniquely capture all of the opposing yet complementary forces and qualities that are inherently masculine and feminine.
Using the principles of duality to create Unity
The application is what ultimately decides the traits of the oils used in a blend.
Rhett Ogston’s deeply-rooted, theoretical understanding of the principles of synergism, duality and the natural state of balance has informed the development of the Jivana perfume range. Restoring the natural state of balance is what it’s all about. For example, an over-abundance of female characteristics can be balanced by scents with a masculine nature and vice versa.
“The real art and beauty in designing this range was in balancing the two separate scents to create one perfectly balanced formula.” (Rhett Ogston)
“Our perfumes (Anima and Animus) serve to enhance the masculine or feminine energy, attributes and archetype.” (Rhett Ogston)
To achieve this perfect balance, Rhett synergistically matched oils based on several categories but focused on one category specifically: that of gender correspondence.
The Natural State of Balance
Yin and Yang
Like the founding principles of Chinese Medicine, all that exists has an opposite but complementary force, as in yin and yang. In our view, this is true for all that exists in nature and essential oils are no different. We believe that essential oils are either inherently male or female. Male scents are more aggressive in action (yang), while female scents are more passive and/or subtle (yin). The male scent is more physical, and the female more emotional and intuitive.
Aromatic Oils and Gender Characteristics
Determining gender characteristics of an aromatic oil is important because it enables the blender to designate the effect the finished product and combination of oils will have, including the manner in which each component of the formula will synergistically interact.
