Bone Cancer Stories #5 – 50ml EDT

Head – Thyme, Mandarin

Heart – Cypress, Fennel

Body – Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Vanilla Musk

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – Adorned with fingerprints and calming tones, this meditative fragrance is a testament to compassion, wellbeing and the virtues of overcoming adversity.

Features – This fragrance offers a reflective space, utilising Thyme, Cypress and light woods to nurture empathy. Mandarin and Fennel elevate the spirit while Vanilla Musk allows the fragrance to retain a sense of individuality.

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.
