In a different light – there’s a scent for every hour.

Every day is a full circle from the first dawn to the moment the sun sets behind the horizon plunging the world into darkness – only to rise again on a new morning. The constantly changing light gives every hour oft the day its own flair and beauty. And as, together with the sun, we travel through each day we change, or as Bob Dylon put it: “I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else.”

We handpicked for you a selection of olfactive travel companions on this daily adventurous journey of growth and change. There’s a perfect scent for every time of the day to set the tone and celebrate the moment. Photographer Joseph Saraceno and creative director and still life stylist Wilson Wong created a captivating series of nine still life vignettes, each one telling a story of a special moment of the day.

Embrace the unknown every single day!
