Suspended among the pine trees, is a ‘rainwater sculpture’ that looks like a chandelier.
In John Grade Studio’s “Reservoir” sculpture, 5,000 x droplets collect rainwater, with each one attached to a clear net suspended within the tree canopy.
As rainwater (or snow) collects within each droplet or evaporates again from it, the sculpture transforms itself dynamically with the changes in its weight.
As a perfumery house, what intrigues us is the combination of the olfactive profiles of pine trees and rainwater in this sculpture.
- Rainwater: watery, green, clean, slightly sulphuric,
- Pine: a woody, resinous note with the essence of pine needle
We expect that around the sculpture will be a unique fragrance sensation reminiscent of a Fougère (Fern in English) with its interaction between:
- a woody, earthy & green note on the one hand, and
- watery, damp and cool freshness on the other.
Fougère / Fern is not derived or extract from a ingredient. Instead, it is an accord that endeavours to recreate the note of a green, damp forest through the combination of Lavender, Oakmoss and Coumarin. Fougère Royale by Houbigant is typically credited with being the first of this kind, which has today become a classic masculine fragrance category.
Here at Pairfum London we have two wonderful fragrances in our perfume collection that are classified as Fougère or Fern:
- White Lavender
Both perfumes are available in our online boutique in various Home Fragrance products:
