There are a number of ways in which we adorn ourselves—clothing, cosmetics, jewelry—to establish our identity. But in the same instance that self-expression sets us free, we are also limited by aesthetic experience and cultural knowledge. We are working with a set of signifiers that cannot be extricated from the meanings and associations that they’ve become tied to.
The creation of a Siganture Scent may be the last medium where self-expression is not constrained. Scent is often lauded for its evocative nature and its strong ties to memory, but it functions in a much more ephemeral and mysterious way.
The custom scent experience is deeply personal, collaborative, and luxurious. Each of our interactions helps me to build and refine what will become your Signature Fragrance. We begin with an interview and scent exploration in my studio, where I learn about your relationship to fragrance and the ideal qualities of should comprise a scent that is entirely yours.
Over the following weeks, I will develop a scent based on our conversations, searching for the combination that will take these from individual components into an utterly singular blend that fulfills your deepest desires. Of course, scent changes on the skin, and as such, this initial blend should be worn thoughtfully. Once any necessary adjustments are made and the blend is complete, you will be provided with a large bottle of your scent and your formula will be kept on file for future refills.
