Fragrance Company launches new film, Meet the Harmony

It’s not often you get a new brand, with new stores in places around the world like Los Angeles on Melrose (per Essential Home Magazine ), plus a new movie to support it. But with the Harmonist that’s exactly what you get.

Says FilmFest.com, “Bruno Aveillan shot ‘Meet the Harmony’ for the new perfume Brand The Harmonist… at Festival de Cannes 2016 which the company is attending for the first time. ‘Meet the Harmony’, tells the love encounter between a man and a woman who will be guided and inspired by an alchemist of senses, a creator of harmony: The Harmonist. It is set in sober and eternal City of Paris, magnified by an elegant black and white treatment, Bruno Aveillan offers us a contemporary fable, modern yet poetic, with subtle emotions which resonate to surrealism, through the magics of special effects.

The sound track was composed by french icon Bruno Coulais.

According to Yahoo Movies, at Cannes:

Kate Hudson, Heidi Klum, Common, Orlando Bloom and Karolina Kurkova started their night at the launch party for The Harmonist, a Paris-based fragrance line based on feng shui and inspired by the elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. The maison de parfum spared no expense for the bash, taking over the beach venue in front of the Hotel Martinez, which was transformed into a Harmonist-themed nightclub with music by Martin Solveig and an exclusive performance by Jason Derulo.
