Perfume Portrait #14 – Dave Cotton

Dave Cotton 50ml EDT P1020410


It reads like a cave painting with a fragrance designed to capture the fundamental need to create coupled with an unabashed thirst for knowledge.


Nominally masculine yet with the ability to offer mental clarity. Rosemary has the mental agility to quench a thirst for knowledge, coupled with the meditative virtues of Naioul, frankincense and thyme. Vanilla musk and black pepper tell of physical activity and bridge the gap between thinking and making.

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
