Perfume Portrait #120 – Marisa Culatto

Marisa Culatto 50ml EDT

Head – Rosemary, Peppermint

Heart – Marjoram

Body – Mulled wine, Frankincense

Description – An ode to Hungary Water; the first known European perfume making process which still informs our understanding of the workings of scent.

Culatto’s Honest Landscape 2 was taken on a road from within the car. Thus it depicts a journey. It does so literally, but also conceptually as part of a series of photographs put through an established process that sees original images reworked, printed with a faulty home printer (which distorts colours), manually crumpled, and re-photographed again. This highlights how process driven work places the artist on a personal journey as well as the literal journey portrayed in the subject matter.

Culatto’s work and corresponding perfume portrait were exhibited at Centrespace Gallery, Bristol, in October 2019.
