Perfume is a powerful thing. It has the ability to transport you to a certain moment in time, bring back memories, and also make you feel a certain way. With the right scent, you feel powerful, feminine, happy, reminiscent  – the emotions, thoughts, and feelings depend on what perfume it is. If you are looking for a new perfume to add to your roster, look no further than The Harmonist, a brand new creation from Ms Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva. Here we take a look at Lola Tillyaeva herself and just how it came to be.

She works with many disadvantaged children as well as for environmental causes and has always had the belief that education, culture, and sport are fundamental for peace and tolerance, and this is something she brings to everything she works with in her life. She set up her own charity back in 2002 called the You Are Not Alone Foundation to help underprivileged children in orphanages as well as funding the medical treatment of children from orphanages and low-income families.

In 2004 she set up the National Centre for the Social Adoption of Children and to date has helped over 7,500 children between the ages of 1 to 18 with special needs. Other notable achievements in her life include being the President of the GFU from 2005 – 2018 and the Honorary President of the Asian Gymnastics Union. In 2016 she was awarded the International Olympic Committee’s “Women and Sport” diploma to recognize the achievements and contributions she has had in promoting gender equality in sport. In 2017, she instigated the Droplet project, which is a walk-in, multi-sensory installation to serve as a platform for debate on global water-related topics and environmental issues. In March 2018 she was made a Dame of the Royal Order of Francis I which is internationally recognized for its contribution to charitable initiatives. The most recent of Karimova Tillyaeva’s projects is The Harmonist.

About The Harmonist

The Harmonist is a Maison de perfume and is the latest project from Karimova-Tillyaeva and her husband, Timur Tillyaev. As with their other projects, it ties in with their work on providing harmony to the world around you. There are eleven perfumes in the range, all of which reflect the dual nature of Yin and Yang, the traditional Chinese concept of empowering yourself and your body.

Each of the scents were created by a well-known French perfumer using natural ingredients from around the world. Each fragrance is unique and embodies the five elements, metal, fire, earth, water and wood. Since its launch, The Harmonist has had a boutique in Paris in 2016, followed by an LA store in March of the same year. As well as being a beautiful range of products, The Harmonist also sponsors philanthropic causes to help develop solutions to the world’s most pressing issues. From providing clean water in developing countries to creating training materials for education about hygiene and sanitation.
