Heart – Juniper, Fennel
Body – Frankincense, Cedarwood

Description – A fragrance that promotes physical fortitude, profound courage and a will to do the things you love. A reminder that your sense of self can shine even in adversity.
Features – An eternal champion of courageousness, this nominally fresh fragrance combats negativity with a lightness and mental deftness offered by its heart and head, yet also offers a degree of depth with its body. Its components are akin to a world class football player.
On 7th May 2016 I created a scent trail of 10 fragrances in The Tetley, Leeds, each describing individual stories of bone cancer patients. My approach afforded consideration towards methods of coping with bone cancer, though chiefly I wanted the positivity, courage, compassion and strength that emerged when faced with adversity to be prominent, alongside the individual traits that sustained, regardless of the disease.
Over the coming weeks I will be posting all 10 perfume portraits that represent the stories of bone cancer patients, though names will be omitted as a mark of respect.
