Perfume Portrait #22 – Mark Heyster

Mark Heyster 50ml EDT Mark Heyster 50ml EDT


Travel perfume – but not as you know it! Here, the process of making is aligned to a journey of the mind and as such, reminds you of the value of process. The perfect fragrance for those times where empirical enquiry and the act of creating take precedent over the end product.


Here, notes display the mental agility needed to consider the value of process whilst also suggesting the virtues of a journey. Geranium and palmarosa display emotional fortitude while eucalyptus and lemongrass act as the practical equipment needed for navigation. Lavender champions both mental and physical clarity while musk displays a more literal and exotic sense of travel.

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 4th March from 6-8pm. More details here
