Perfume Portrait #35 – John Wilkinson
John Wilkinson 50ml EDT
Head – Apple, Cut Grass
Heart – Pine
Body – Cedarwood
Description – Everything you need to comprehend an apple tree. Yet scratch away the surface and a fallacy is revealed – as synthetic fragrance oils have been used. This highlights the trials of communicating from industrial contexts.
This perfume was created by utilising the artist’s response to the question ‘why do make art?’ It is included in Perfume as Practice AW16 – an exhibition at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield comprising of 14 perfume portraits themed within the woody fragrance family. The exhibition runs from 30th November – 3rd December 2016 and includes an open evening featuring an artist’s talk on 3rd December, 6-8pm at Bank Street Arts itself.
