Alessi has unveiled The Five Seasons by Marcel Wanders, a collection of fragrances and aroma diffusers, marking the company’s entry into the home environment category.
“The Five Seasons is a collection of objects that creates a multisensory experience: sinuous organic forms that are aesthetically pleasing; natural materials that delight our sense of touch; and enveloping scents dedicated to our oldest and most instinctive sense— our sense of smell,” said Alberto Alessi, president, Alessi.
The collection includes a leaf fragrance diffuser and lava stone fragrance diffuser. The five scents are representative of the seasons and include: Brrr (Winter); Ahhh (Spring); Hmm (Summer); Grrr (Autumn); and a fifth season called Shhh, which is said to be enigmatic and cloaked in black.
The porcelain bowl of the mahogany leaf diffuser is circular with a slightly rounded base, allowing it to rotate and spin. The leaves used to diffuse a different scent for each season are made from sapele mahogany. The diffuser is sold together with a 5-ounce bottle of essence.
The collection also includes scented candles, a room spray, a bottle candleholder and a candle snuffer.
