The light, fresh, gentle (water flower), decent scent of 'Water Calligraphy' by Kilian is from the 'Asian Tales' perfume collection. The composition by perfumer Calice Becker pays tribute to water and its role in the art of calligraphy; it comes into shops in May 2012. The 'Asian Tales' collection is arranged as a series - like the name says, of Asian tales-fragrances such as 'Bamboo Harmony' which is inspired by 'the tale of the bamboo cutter' (release May 2012). It is announced that three further scents will follow; the perfumes are olfactory interpretations of the Asian tales 'the peony pavilion', 'the peach flowers water source', and 'the lotus flower and the dragon king'.
