Perfume Portrait #9 – Pip Barrett

Pip Barrett 50ml EDTP1020379

Description

All the joy of your favorite story in a bottle! With visual embellishments that tell of narrative structure, this fragrance grips, delights, confounds and captivates just like a well thumbed bedside book.

Features

This fragrance intends to read like a storybook while hinting at the inner workings of narrative structure. The sweetness and innocence of orange embarks upon a narrative journey given gravitas by coriander before blooming into geranium and becoming as strong as cedarwood. Frankincense suggests a story with morals while a hint of piperita mentha puts orange in peril initially.

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.

This perfume will be on display at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, from 2-18th March 2016. There will be a Private View on the 2nd March from 6-8pm. More details here

  1. hi michael,

    not sure if you still looking for people to respond to your question and make a scent from it great idea. i would like to know if you think that from there one could go on and work out a musical note from the perfume.? i think everyone is tuned to a note of one sort or another.

    the reason why i do art is its one of the few things i have found yet that gives my life a sense of meaning. most of the time it feels pretty meaningless. art keeps me on track in a kind of loose way it gives me strength to question things and to courage to not comply even when it would be a hell of l lot easier to.

    out of everything i have tried it is something that comes thru me and happens when i can mange to get out of my own way. it is surprising and i enjoy the mystery of the unknown.

    hope thats helpful

    kind regards amanda burgess

    • Hi Amanda,

      Thank you for getting in touch!

      Yes, I certainly think a musical note could be extracted from perfume. I think anything that is open to interpretation has the potential to reflect the essence of someone.

      Many thanks for your response – yes I am still looking for them. I won’t have time to make your perfume before my 1st exhibition on 2-18th March, but I’m hoping to do 2 perfume exhibitions a year so I’ll be sure to make yours for the next one, which will probably be around October.

      Many thanks,

      Michael
