And so I finally got some feedback on my last assignment of year 1 of my Master of Design degree. This essay is about the aesthetics of smell and I got a top mark for it I’m pleased to say. Some of the scents discussed are Vezzoli’s GREED, Maison de Margiela’s REPLICA, and artist Niki de Saint Phalle’s own scent (for which you can see and old advertisement for below). Recently I found out about another product series in the same intersection between art and perfume. Andrea Maack, an Icelandic company, have a number of scents available that were originally created for an art exhibition.
