In Taoist philosophy, the concept of Yin and Yang is one of simultaneous contrast and integration, of complementarity and opposition, represented by dark and light, moon and sun, concept and thing. As Histoires de Parfums describes it: “every element in the universe has its own opposite: feminine-masculine, day-night, fire-water, natural-synthetic…Yin and Yang are two complementary forces that are interdependent on one another. They are two aspects of the same reality.” With its dreamy, purple-grey lushness, 1.4 is perfumer Sylvie Jourdet’s rendering of yin, which is composed of 100 percent natural ingredients.Luca Maffei cleverly brings the contrast of heat and chill in a mirror-image reverse of 1.4, the cool notes emerging gradually after the intense radiance of the opening. Taken separately, each perfume holds a looking glass to the other, but is complete by itself. But together they unite their contrasting elements into something harmoniously lovely. They become an olfactory embodiment of yin and yang.
