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.
