Each year, the Six Scents Fragrance initiative brings the experience of creativity with a conscience to the world through a collection of six individual scents. Created by a distinct group of designers and perfumers, these limited edition fragrances are designed to represent a global range of contemporary views on creativity and culture. Through the designers’ concepts and the perfumers’ knowledge of fine fragrance, two artistic disciplines interweave to explore new perfume compositions and multi-sensory experiences.
The Six Scents Fragrance Initiative is an ongoing collaboration between Symrise, Metaproject and Seven New York. Annually, the distinct group of six prominent artists and perfumers selected to develop the limited edition series of fragrance, help raise money for charity. The collection represents a worldwide spectrum of contemporary perspectives on creativity, culture, consciousness and collectivity.
"To know nature is to begin to know art, and to know art is to understand that it cannot exist independent of nature. Six Scents Series Two explores the relationship between artist and nature through a collection of six fragrances, six stories, six films, six art pieces and six photographic works. Each experience intends to instigate the desire to preserve our environment so that others can continue to be inspired by the beauty, power and intrigue of nature."
"A Collective Creation Focused on spreading a message of environmental sustainability in a non-redundant way, we invited each designer to imagine a place, action and person that would be the basis of their fragrance. From their response a story evolved. The perfumers, directors, photographers, artists, designers and writers that have collaborated on Series Two were asked to interpret these stories as they understood them. The final result is a multi-media and multi-sensory collective creation. Everything began with a place, action and person because our relationship to nature begins with an experience. Preserving that experience begins by telling its story."
