Bone Cancer Stories #3 – 50ml EDT


Heart – Jasmine, Ginger

Body – Sandalwood, Vanilla Musk

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – Drenched in confidence and the ability to entertain, this fragrance champions positivity and tells of self-assurance in times of hardship.

Features – Basil – synonymous with mental fortitude – is accompanied by the sense of awareness offered by Sandalwood and the sense of fun found in vanilla musk. Jasmine offers depth while Peppermint and Ginger offer a degree of mystique akin to a magician’s sleight of hand.

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.
