Kismet Jardin Bridges Alchemy of the Past to the Scientific Advancements of the Present in Perfumery
Kismet Jardin is bridging the mystery and beauty of pure natural ingredients and alchemical processes of the past to the scientific advancements of the present in Perfumery. In contrast to main-stream synthetic chemicals based perfumery, a good natural perfume is very much like a work of art, a beautiful equation that has among its attributes much more than attractive fragrance – it has an undefined combination of elemental powers of Fire, Air, Water and Earth; using only flower essences, plant extracts and essential oils from leaves, buds, herbs, resins, fruits and seeds.
From Cleopatra, to royal courts of Napoleon, to spiritual places of worship-natural fragrances have exerted their magical influence throughout the ages. Our ancestors lived in harmony with nature and knew well that their survival depended on a safe and healthy environment. A merely growth oriented economy and thousands of man-made chemicals have disrupted a fine balance with the environment.
"Various synthetic fragrance compounds have been reported to contaminate the environment. These released materials participate in natural cycles and reactions and frequently lead to interference and disturbance of human and environmental health," said Manoj Jain, Director R & D, Kismet Jardin Pty Ltd. "More than 100 years ago discovery of a nitroaromatic compound with a typical and strong musk odour, by chance in the laboratory, sparked and started a fast growing worldwide industry producing synthetic musks with different chemical structures".
"Nitro and polycyclic musks in European fish and humans were found at the beginning of the 1990s. The synthetic musks in human milk and adipose tissue can be caused not only by the uptake of polluted food but also by absorption through the skin," said Manoj Jain.
Natural fragrances have been used since antiquity as an expression of an inherent human desire to be unique, vibrant and fragrant, and as a means to connect with the transcendent.
Kismet Jardin intends to bring a refreshing change and re-establish the age old traditions of Natural perfumery. Kismet Jardin Pty Ltd is a South Australia based company; it was established in Feb, 2010 as a natural perfumery. The company is expanding its operational activities and seeking suitable business partners.
