Asomatria is an olfactory aesthetic project by Viktor van Bramer. The name is a portmanteau of the latin words asomatus which means intangible and matria meaning mother. By bringing them together Asomatria uses scent to envelope the wearer, attracting that which benefits them, and protecting them from what will not. It shapes intentions and communicates beyond the verbal. Each perfume is a painting that is just begun, but the work of art is only ever finished by the wearer.
