“Smells like modern art. At their most compelling the creative arts go deeper than the aesthetic brilliance of a beautiful painting or the auditory indulgence of sa superb sonata. They explore the boundaries of our perception and the intersection of our senses, our emotions and our intellect. And we do not normally think of fragrance or the olfactory world as a typical playground of such ambitious art. But experimental project Six Scents is working hard to challenge this assumption” – Mavia Popova, Editor. brainpickings.org
Six Scents: Series Three is the third year that 3 Deep has collaborated with Six Scents Parfums. Series Three is an exploration into the nature of childhood memories and the influence of adolescence on identity. Six designers from six different parts of the world were invited to remember the most definitive experiences of their youth that led to their sense of identity today and to recall some of their most intimate childhood memories involving the sense of smell. Exploring the stories from one through six, innocence begins to fade and rebellion, reality and mischief kick in.

Codizia for Men is a male fragrance from the same brand which was launched three years ago the female market. It shares the quality product positioning, differential, and has a much lower price than high-end colognes. The packaging communicates similar attributes: sensuality, elegance, dynamism, etc. It does this following the same language and some of the characteristics of its female predecessor, as in the solution for the join between body and cap, but with changes that reaffirm their male personality: the colors and the volume, which moves from the horizontal to a vertical position for Codizia for Men. Is also distributed exclusively in the MERCADONA chain of supermarkets.

“This month sees the launch of the new Penhaligon’s Christmas gift collection. The gift boxes, which are based on the theme of anthropomorphic animals, deliver a bespoke gifting solution for the boutique perfumer. Briefed with delivering eccentricity and decadence, the new collection creates a fantasy world in keeping with the brand’s charismatic charm. Each range tells a story, from an afternoon tea party through to music and discovery.
“This was a fantastically collaborative process with the client – we both wanted to create something unique that didn’t rely on Christmas clichés. The use of bright colours makes a real statement and ensures the boxes are not too traditional.” Jovan Buac, Senior Account Manager, jkr. “That’s the beauty of Penhaligon’s – the careful blending of the old and the new – modern doesn’t have to mean forgetting the past, but feeling classic doesn’t mean being really conservative.”

“A tribute to a woman’s delicacy based in these concepts: Dandelion and dusty colors. Pink is the highlight in the packaging, meanwhile ethereal seeds of dandelion create the draw in the box.”

“This month sees the launch of jkr designed Sartorial, a new fragrance from boutique perfumer Penhaligon’s. In keeping with the charismatic eccentricity of the brand, Sartorial captures the smell of a Savile Row tailors shop. The scent was brought to life by renowned perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour inside Norton & Sons at 16 Savile Row, London. Duchaufour found himself captivated by the unique smell of the shop and tailor’s workroom, and as such, Sartorial evokes the masculine scent of sewing machines, needles, wool and cloth – the ultimate bespoke fragrance.
The packaging gives the Pengaligon’s brand (who are renowned for their heritage and history) a clean, elegant and more modern look. “Sartorial is for men of today and Savile Row is very much having a revival among young gents” said Jovan Buac, Senior Account Manager, jkr. “It was a challenging brief. We didn’t want to use any tailoring clichés and the design had to fit with the brand’s other fragrances, some of which have been around for over 140 years.”

“Sophisticated and unique, the Tonka Negro/Neroli Blanco (Black Tonka and White Neroli) collection stands out for its elegance and glamour with its clean and straight shapes. Two fragrances get together to conquer the insatiable taste of the Hotel Avia 93’s hosts, located in Bogotá. Tonka Negro represents a intense aroma with sensually savage effects; Neroli Blanco is the royalty’s perfume (Azahar flower), which represents the beauty and elegance.”
