HOMAGE TO THE FORCES OF NATURE

ASHÉ was developed in accordance with the vibrant and colourful spiritual tradition of the Brazilian Candomblé. Candomblé is about creating an exchange between people and the gods – called Orishás.

The ultimate goal of Candomblé is Iwá Pele, to be a good person who lives in harmony with his or her destiny.

ASHÉ is a tribute to the ORISHÁS – the forces of nature. They represent the principles of the universe and are carriers of universal energy. The ORISHÁS provide for the inner and outer balance of the human being.

MAGICAL SCENT CREATIONS

ASHÉ is presented in 18 exclusive perfume compositions. These natural perfume oils transport the joie de vivre, the energy and the wisdom of these elemental forces of nature. They are offered in highly concentrated form as alcohol-free perfumes and can be worn as fragrance or elixir on the skin or on the hair. A few drops are enough for a long-lasting magical experience.

the ORISHÁS

The Orishás are the “gods” of Candomblé and represent the principles of nature. Prayers and dances are dedicated to them, as well as specific foods, herbs and essential oils. It is said that the wearer of these scents would connect with the ashé, the energy, of these gods.

Each of the 18 magical ASHÉ fragrances transports the individual and mystical power of the Orishás in special compositions.
