Calaj Perfume © 2020
Happiness begins with freedom. It implies it. There can be no happiness without freedom. But freedom has some illusion to it, wouldn’t you say? Sometimes you think you’re free, but you’re really not… and then again, sometimes you’re actually free, but you just don’t realize it, or you’re just too afraid to exercise that freedom. They say we are born free, yet we learn freedom, just like any other skill. The thing is- it’s a quest, it takes time, patience and experimenting. In a way, it’s like creating a perfume, combining raw material, choosing the right aromas, the ideal ratios, digging deep for nuance and soul. So every once in a while, after facing some of those trials and tribulations, life usually throws back at you and you have to remember: you’re on your own pathway to freedom.
It’s not easy.It’s not supposed to be.
A13 means Love and Happiness ,but especially Freedom.
A Romanian Perfume House that was born in very gray and uncertain times, but a house that can underline the man’s power to adapt.
Behind Closed Doors was created as yang to the yin of A13’s previous creation, Out In The Open. It begins with a seductive invitation, follows it up with a fireworks display and ends up being as deep and meaningful as a meditation. Its joyful floral and citrusy top notes, spicy sweet middle and woody core with animalic hints, make for an intricate chypre, meant to evoke the intimacy of a set, yet ever evolving inner universe. If balance had a scent, you would find it in a flask of Behind Closed Doors. Order and chaos, matter and spirit, as seen through the lens of a scope one uses to explore within, rather than beyond
