RITUALS TO SMELL DIVINE &
FEEL INTENSELY WELL
Imagine an invisible shield, that protects you from the judgment of others. An armor of softness, refined and warm — a gentle reminder that you have been and always will be enough.
The Confiance Collection contains warm, spicy heart notes with intensely comforting notes of bourbon, vanilla, and cedarwood to give you the confidence needed to express your absolute self.
RITUALS IF YOU HAVE 15 SEC, 15 MIN OR MORE...
When you feel the lack of confidence overwhelming you, take out your Valeur Absolue Confiance handbag version and apply two sprays on each wrist. Let rest 2 sec. Visualize the smell of perfume as a ball of strength that surrounds and protects you.
WHY IT WORKS
The nose is directly connected to the part of the brain where the emotions sit. Numerous clinical studies show that certain smells have the power to activate particular feelings consciously (as in Proust’s madeleine) but also in an unconscious way and linked to our human species. The aromachology studies this link between scents and psychology and is at the base of our perfumes.
15 MINUTES OR MORE RITUAL
Rub a small amount of Confiance Dry Oil between your hands, bring them up to surround your nose, breathe deeply, and take a few minutes to visualize yourself failing. Imagine and maybe even write down would happen if you failed to reach some specific goal. Write down everything that goes through your head and anything that shakes your confidence. Reread it, put a realistic spin on it, and then decide whether to go for it or not. If you go there, you know that you will be able to face the worst case scenario.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
Fear cuts our wings and makes us think only with our old ancestral reflexes: to flee or fight. It is impossible to believe and appeal to our full potential if fear (of failure) invades us. Any tool that takes away or mitigates this fear allows us to better approach situations and ultimately succeed. Adding a little Confiance to the mix serves to encourage a mind that is open and capable of overcoming anything.
The Valeur Absolue Confiance collection uses knowledge of aromachology (how aromas affect our brain) and lithotherapy (how energies emitted by stones affect our mood) to create an experience that positively impacts well-being.
AROMACHOLOGY AND THE SCENTS THAT STRENGTHEN SELF-CONFIDENCE
Valeur Absolue Confiance perfume carries oriental, wood, and fruity tones. The fragrance begins with spicy notes of clove and cinnamon. The heart notes ––infinitely gentle––entwine sweet confit of peach and enveloping tones of amber. The base notes release intense and comforting aromas from notes of Bourbon vanilla and cedar wood. Valeur Absolue Confiance creates this protective cocoon and offers you a warm refuge with unique and sweet charm.
LITHOTHERAPY: CONFIANCE'S SEMI-PRECIOUS STONES
Along with their infinite beauty, stones and crystals are thought to provide immense emotional healing potential in the forms of chromotherapy, oligotherapy, and soothing energies. Valeur Absolue’s Confiance collection contains semi-precious carnelian stones that carry the following characteristics:
- Chromotherapy: The orange color of the carnelian stone symbolizes inner strength and encourages resiliency.
- Oligotherapy: Carnelian stones diffuse trace elements and minerals that are thought to inspire leadership and courage.
- Energetic aspect: Carnelian stones are thought to emit stabilizing vibrations that then communicate to the perfume and release beneficial energy.
"I really like the smell of Confiance, it’s feminine and sweet. You can’t really go wrong with wearing it in the summer or winter because it’s not overly musky or floral. I felt energized and calm throughout the day and love how easy the bottle is to take around with you."
