Bone Cancer Stories #2 – 50ml EDT

 IMG_4304Head – Orange, Basil

Heart – Juniper, Fennel

Body – Frankincense, Cedarwood

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – A fragrance that promotes physical fortitude, profound courage and a will to do the things you love. A reminder that your sense of self can shine even in adversity.

Features – An eternal champion of courageousness, this nominally fresh fragrance combats negativity with a lightness and mental deftness offered by its heart and head, yet also offers a degree of depth with its body. Its components are akin to a world class football player.

On 7th May 2016 I created a scent trail of 10 fragrances in The Tetley, Leeds, each describing individual stories of  bone cancer patients. My approach afforded consideration towards methods of coping with bone cancer, though chiefly I wanted the positivity, courage, compassion and strength that emerged when faced with adversity to be prominent, alongside the individual traits that sustained, regardless of the disease. 

Over the coming weeks I will be posting all 10 perfume portraits that represent the stories of bone cancer patients, though names will be omitted as a mark of respect.
