Bone Cancer Stories #6 – 50ml EDT


Head – Grapefruit, Basil

Heart – Lavender, Juniper

Body – Sandalwood, Cedarwood

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – For those who love to push themselves and explore every facet of life, this fragrance encourages your sense of fun and adventure.

Features – Grapefruit and Lavender hail a desire to explore and are bolstered by the mental virtues of Basil. All built one solid foundation of Juniper, Sandalwood and Cedarwood – a testament to the merits of family support, which allows an individual to bloom.

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.
