What It’s Like to Get a Feng Shui Fragrance

It’s like horoscopes, but beauty.

What It’s Like to Get a Feng Shui Fragrance
Tristan Kallas

While I’m completely, embarrassingly into my horoscope—I’m a cancer and I have spent hours reading long explanations about myself and which signs would make my ideal partner—I never considered what my feng shui element would be. I didn’t even know that I could have one. I’ve done my fair share of shifting around furniture based on Googled feng shui charts (sorry, downstairs neighbor), and I do think part of how I wound up with a wonderful partner is because I regularly light two candles together in the romance sector of my studio (please don’t tell him that), so the possibility of fragrances that could enhance my best natural traits and even influence other parts of my life sounded pretty sweet to me.

Enter The Harmonist. The basic premise of The Harmonist fragrances is that there are five elements (water, earth, fire, metal, and air) and two energies (yin and yang), which makes for a total of 10 fascinating and extremely different fragrances. Each one is blended using notes predominantly from the main element and with extra notes that speak to the characteristics of that element. For example, air fragrances smell more light and fresh, and wood fragrances smell, well, you can guess. Getting your full feng shui chart done actually takes hours to complete, but you can do a shortcut version either in the store or online to you find your element and learn all about which of the fragrances will vibe with you best. You even get a monthly forecast, just like with zodiacs. My inner narcissist is totally sold! Click through below to learn how it all goes down.

Harmonist has graphic-looking boutiques in Paris and Los Angeles that are very precisely designed with black-and-white marble and bright green malachite tables (which are said to absorb negative energy) in the middle of the shop—the energy center of the space.
