Bone Cancer Stories #10 – 50ml EDT

IMG_4294Head – Lemon, Basil, Orange

Heart – Lavender, Clove

Body – Patchouli, Frankincense

Bridge – Benzoin, Black Pepper, Petitgrain

Description – The essence of calm and self-assurance, this fragrance provides a meditative sense of peace while harnessing a yearning desire to be yourself.

Features – Clove and Frankincense provide connotations associated with spiritual healing, and this is bolstered by the sense of mental clarity offered by sweet and citrus tones.

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.
