Perfume Portrait #39 – Elaine

Head – Bergamot

Heart – Cypress

Body – Dill Weed, Myrrh

Description – A symbol of symbiosis. This fragrance celebrates synchronicity by placing the heavy textures of dill weed and myrrh against the crispness of cypress and bergamot. Perfectly encapsulating a sense of harmony.

This perfume was created by utilising the artist’s response to the question ‘why do make art?’ It is included in Perfume as Practice AW16 – an exhibition at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield comprising of 14 perfume portraits themed within the woody fragrance family. The exhibition ran from 30th November – 3rd December 2016 and included an open evening featuring an artist’s talk on 3rd December, 6-8pm at Bank Street Arts itself.
