Bone cancer stories #9 – 50ml EDT

IMG_4321Head – Orange, Bergamot

Heart – Coriander, Clove

Body – Frankincense, Sandalwood

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – Exuding happiness derived from both personal trails and family support. This fragrance displays a wholesome sense of positivity.

Features – Frankincense and Sandalwood utilise their woody tones to describe a support structure which in turn allows light, fresh citrus tones to reveal positivity. Clove and Coriander add depth and supports a sense of mental clarity in adversity.

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.
