MANIFESTO

How to be nature? That was the first question. What we are doing today in Bravanariz are our attempts to respond to that first movement.

The revelation is that we are all nature. So obvious is surprising. We know it, but we do not practice it, and we relate to it as if it were something foreign, something to study and understand, something to exploit or protect. We need to define new ways of relating to nature, with us. And that is precisely what we are doing.

BRAVANARIZ are the places and the plants. Scents are the language of plants. The forests are full of olfactory voices that affect and transform us. Our drive is to capture those aromas and put them in a bottle. Not to study them, but to be able to speak the language of plants.

Smell is our most primitive and animal sense. Smelling makes us an animal, smelling makes us a plant. Following your nose means following your instincts. That is our proposal. To smell wildly, eagerly and curiously. Stick your nose in, get involved, let yourself be transformed and perhaps, with some practice, feel like nature to relate to the environment from a different, more inclusive and empathetic place.
