Making a Commercial Perfume

This rather innocuous image represents the initial development of something I have thus far unexplored; selling perfume commercially.

This perfume sample – outsourced to fragrance suppliers Carvansons to my specifications – will be sold at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery from May 2020, to coincide with their upcoming Pre-Raphaelite exhibition.

While this unisex fragrance is designed with an element of mass appeal, it still contains a certain conceptual weight, as it acts as an olfactory depiction of the Pre-Raphaelites and their nostalgic interpretation of medieval life. The fragrance is filled will abundant fruits and florals, representing a bountiful and quintessentially English existence. The perfume finishes with exotic spices and musks, which reference human endeavour and conquest.

Look out for my perfume if you’re in Bristol this summer!


Art Sale!

SCI – a collaborative based in Liverpool that I’m part of – are travelling to Athens in May to be part of a group exhibition called Platforms. The exhibition coincides with Documenta 14 and will take place in The Cultural Centre between 20th – 25th May.

As you can imagine, this is an exciting endeavour for us, but it does have cost implications. So, in an effort to raise a little cash, we are placing some of our work in an art sale. This sale will be hosted online from now until 15th May.

This is a fantastic opportunity to own original work at a great price while actively supporting UK artists. Take a look at the link below for the full range of works available; from perfume to sculpture, printmaking to cross-stitch, there’s something for everyone! All prices include postage too.
