Perfumes which aren't for wearing

We relish the chance to work on projects which need scents to bring them to life. These are a few of them. 

Timeless - a fictional shop

A weeklong installation and Old Street tube station, with the appearance of a smart cosmetics shop selling customised fragrance and skincare, Timless was in fact an event aimed at exploring the pros and cons of egg-freezing. Devised by the Liminal Space, supported by the London School of Economics and the Wellcome Trust. We made real fragrances to evoke the stresses of modern work-life-career-parenthood choices.

For our first project with Josh, we made the scent of an airport lounge on top of a new build residential project, on top of a gym - flooded. That's what he wanted.

The Shipwrecked House

Poet Claire Trevien needed two scents for her one woman show tour, the comforting smell of a wooden seaside home, and the not at all comforting smell of a shipwreck.
