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.
