At In Fiore, we believe the skin is a sense organ and scent initiates healing. Olfactory Nostalgia is a look at medicinal triggers, scented memories, and the feelings that ensue when taking in a distinct ingredient.
Meet Jakub Kopčák, co-owner of Ingredients, an impeccable fragrance and beauty boutique in Prague that offers, of course, In Fiore and an array of coveted items. Jakub has an eye for taste and aesthetics, but most of all, a unique and efficacious assortment.
“The ability of scents to trigger memories and emotions, change mood, and heal your body and soul is truly amazing”
What & Where:
Co-owner of Ingredients, a perfume and beauty concept store based in Prague / Czech Republic.
The damp earthy smell of patchouli always takes me back to the heart of Borneo, where I trekked Danum Valley’s primeval jungle. It’s where I discovered my inner adventurer and totally fell in love with the oldest rainforest on earth. The smells, the sounds, the energy, the biodiversity... I’ve been obsessed with rainforests ever since.
Perfumery as Medicine:
I’ve been fascinated by scents and their transformative power since I was a teenager. The ability of scents to trigger memories and emotions, change mood, and heal your body and soul is truly amazing.
SHOP PATCHOULI-INFUSED ESSENTIALS
Patchouli Royale is deep, dark, and opulent. Culled from patchouli leaves obtained from Grasse, France, it fades into a light, amber sweetness stirred by the scent of burning oud and exotic balsams. Just think of it as a finely aged scotch.
Shevanti Body Balm
Essence of Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Frankincense, and Rose.
