Six Scents

Video: Azuma Makoto & Alessandro Tinelli

Annually, a group of six prominent artists are selected to create a series of six fragrances with six celebrated perfumers in order to raise awareness and funding for a deserving charity. Collectively, diverse members of the creative world are invited to contribute and a global initiative is launched. The goal is to trigger momentum around each cause through creativity with a conscience.

Six Scents: Series Two
In collaboration with Givaudan, Six Scents Series Two explores the relationship between artist and nature through a collection of fragrances, stories, films, art and photography. Each experience intends to instigate the desire to preserve the environment of Six Scents so that others can continue to be inspired by the beauty, power and intrigue of nature. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Pro-Natura in support of their environmental sustainability programs.

Beautiful. The folks at Pretty Monkey Studio created this from footage from A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Dieterle and Max Reinhardt made in 1935. 1935!!!

Glitter, billowing fabric, UNICORN PONIES. I’m pretty sure this is my future.

Merry Christmas from me!

It’s Christmas Eve here and the relatives have arrived at my parent’s house. My mom is running around the kitchen—I think she’s using Giada de Laurentiis’ fried calamari recipe, omg—while the cousins and I are sitting around online shopping with our MacBooks and/or painting nails (proof). I can’t wait to eat! This is my tree and there are absolutely no presents under it for me. Believe me, I’ve checked. Multiple times. Nevertheless, the holidays have been running smoothly and hopefully tomorrow will bring some surprises!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas tomorrow and get decent presents. Mele Kalikimaka!
