Les Sens: natural incenses made with aromatic herbs
The sense of smell.
Of the 5 senses, it is the oldest and most articulated in the development of the human being.
The olfactory stimuli reach the cerebral cortex directly, without being filtered by the Thalamus,
the most rational part.
Smells affect mood: joy, excitement, calm, relaxation.
Smell is a chemical sense. Its receptor cells, located in the nasal cavity, are sensitive to
stimuli of a chemical nature induced by volatile odorous molecules.
In history they were widely used.
For their importance and beneficial properties, in 812 AD, Charlemagne made it mandatory, with a
edict, the cultivation of 74 herbs defined as "healthy and indispensable" throughout the Holy Roman Empire.
Each aromatic herb is characterized by different chemical molecules that characterize its smell: ad
example in peppermint we find menthol and menton, which gives that peculiar hint of
cold, pungent, intense and green which is found in all parts of the plant, while rosemary is
rich in camphor and bornyl acetate which give it a penetrating, intense and woody smell. The
basil has fair amounts of estragolo and methyl eugenol, sweet and aromatic notes and finally
the smell of fennel, with its content in anethole and fenchone, brings us back to sensations of sweetness and
Mix of freshly picked aromatic herbs.
Each characterized by synergies of herbs suitable for certain objectives.
You can choose the herbs to put in it, or get advice from us.
