Scent-sational Drawings by Andrea Maack

Andrea Maack's CRAFT fragrance with hints of Alde Hyde, Elemi, Cold metal, Ice, Cedar wood, Patchouli 

I know that this is not an art blog per se, but I could not help but be intrigued by this collaborative project by artist/designer/perfumer Andrea Maack. The multi-talented Icelander has created mesmerizing drawings as an expression of scent-sational, olfactory realms illustrating the terms 'SMART, CRAFT, and SHARP'. Maack worked with the French perfumery APF aromes & perfumes to create unique fragrances that translated her original drawings into pure and alluring scents.

The alchemically-cool Amanda Walker at A Perfume Organic clued me into this rather novel art experiment. Check out Amanda's intoxicating Rose fragrance complete with seed-embedded packaging that you can actually plant in your garden. 

I look forward to meeting up with Amanda and her colleagues this evening at the NYC Natural Perfumers Guild gathering at Candle 79

Talk about delicious multi-media art - oops, I mean fashion. Above drawings courtesy of Andrea Maack's website.
