Perfume Portrait #84 – Anthony Carr

Head – Sage, Petitgrain20190227_193806

Heart – Black pepper

Body – Frankincense, Rosewood

Description – a fragrance that simultaneously acts as a medicinal cure-all when embarking on a journey as well as a description of that journey: Top notes reference a certain locality, which gives way to increasingly exotic ingredients.

This perfume will be exhibited alongside 9 other perfume portraits at Lumen Crypt Gallery, London, from 4 – 7th April 2019.

Perfume Portrait #21 – Tanya Ahmed

Tanya Ahmed 50ml EDTTanya Ahmed 50m EDT


The notion of a sense of place, re-imagined for the 21st century! Here we see a Hex Sign – steeped in tradition and history –  coupled with a sense of awareness in relation to the environment. This fragrance reinforces your unique position in the world, and encourages you to be aware of what is around you.


A fragrance that promotes the clarity and directness of simplicity, here we see sandalwood and rosemary offer pertinent emotional aptitude while physical presence is described by ginger, fennel and lemon.


This fragrance was created by interpreting and investigating a response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’ If you are an artist (in the broadest sense of the word) I would love to her your response to the question too, as it will enable me to create a perfume portrait that captures the essence of your creative persona.

This perfume will be on display at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, from 2-18th March 2016. There will be a Private View on the 2nd March from 6-8pm. More details here
