“The scent of Departure” – this work of art & humour & wonder curated by Perfumer Gérald Ghislain and designer Magali Sénéquier is the highlight of today.
I know that scent of places’s been done before like Comme des Garçons trying to be a bit exclusive, however,
I think this whole idea + design + package + name + price is so spot on for everybody – young to old / male to female / rich to common – to get the message.
This encounter took me trips to the airports / cities I’ve been to.
I certainly remember the scent (?) of Seoul – garlic (very strong) / Tokyo – humid soya sauce & rice / Athens – sun on marble / Rome – earth / Paris – damp / Berlin – dusty /Amsterdam – clean modern /London – cleaning products….
Made me realised that the scents are associated with my affection to those cities and big part of my memory.
Big thumbs up to them.
