Birth and death frame a life. Each, like the other, is an unavoidable part of it, as we all know. Yet, while the first might overwhelm us with joy, the latter can send us to the depths of despair. In this very difficult time, we partake in a grieving process. In this process there is a normal, legitimate and natural stage where we have the urge to maintain one or more links to our loved one.
Each person, depending on their sensitivities, whether visual, tactile or aural, will seek a photo, video, object, or listen to a voice message. For people with a keen sense of smell, it will be comforting to discover the scent of a loved one who has passed away. In such cases, Kalain offers a personalized boxed set of olfactory comfort, which comes with a small perfume bottle in the center—the essence, the olfactory signature of the loved one.
Jean Giono once said of perfume, “It extends the individual, living or dead, through its evocative and emotional power. It makes silence speak. It inhabits absence.”
