Perfume Portrait #6 – Karen Cupola

Karen Cupola 50ml EDTKaren Cupola EDT 50ml


Blood red with visible fingerprints. The tactile, visceral and passionate nature of this scent reaches far beyond the aesthetics of the bottle.


Initial tones of sweet orange invite you in while hints of black pepper and cherry keep things spontaneous and fun. Tones of musk exude passion while hints of lavender suggest clarity and focus like the eye in a storm.


This fragrance was created by interpreting and investigating a response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’ If you are an artist (in the broadest sense of the word) I would love to her your response to the question too, as it will enable me to create a perfume portrait that captures the essence of your creative persona. These perfumes will be on display at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, early next year.
