The Studio Series is a periodic, evolving project that unites perfumery, writing, and art, in an exploration and analysis of the processes and phenomena of fragrance.
First, it provides perfume collectors with wearable perfumes-in-progress, as the perfumer experiences themself. Each samples a different moment in the chronology of an evolving fragrance composition, each vial an opportunity to enjoy the mostly secret variations which fragrances go through before completion. This reveals a unique olfactive narrative hardly found in large-scale commercial perfumery.
Second, each set features original writing and artwork, presenting different perspectives on a theme, commissioned from collaborators who hold sharp views in and outside the perfume community.
Studio Series 9 consists of seven perfume samples: three iterations of a new Remix Project; plus three iterations and the completed release of After Every Ounce of Joy (Leaves My Body), a new perfume. An essay on trauma, vessels, and perfume by writer, artist, and Instagram Stories superstar Sunday Williams (@sundaysmells) was commissioned for and elaborates this project. The essay is presented as a digital zine with an accompanying screenprint.
Finally, an essay in which I discuss the concepts, ideas, and processes behind each release, called Studio Wafts, rounds out the entire project.
In total: Seven perfume samples, two essays, a digital zine, and a screenprint. Artfully packed.
