Perfume Portrait #23 – Clare McLaughlin

Clare McLaughlin 50ml EDT


Using the aesthetics of World War 1 Dazzle Ships as a metaphor for instigating change within creative practice, this fragrance champions innovative solutions to pre-conceived ideals and is persuasive in the business of thinking outside the box. Perfect for times when the only way forward is through new approaches.


As the aesthetics confound and alter perception, so too does the actual fragrance. Nominally floral with notes such as geranium and jasmine, yet designed to bush the boundaries of what floral can be with notes such as cinnamon and ginger.

This fragrance was created by interpreting and investigating a response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’ If you are an artist (in the broadest sense of the word) I would love to her your response to the question too, as it will enable me to create a perfume portrait that captures the essence of your creative persona.

This perfume will be on display at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, from 2-18th March 2016. There will be a Private View on the 4th March from 6-8pm. More details  here
