Event description

Description

Blend your own scent interpretation of the color blue with a curated fragrance palette. During this session, you'll learn about color theory, smell unusual aromatic materials, and share your perfume design with the world!

The IAO presents a repeating design challenge, open to all perfumers and creative practitioners with scent who want to flex their creative muscles in a friendly and constructive environment.

ABOUT

Inspired by the "design charrettes" of architecture schools (or similar to ‘Iron Chef’ for TV lovers), the IAO Perfume Design Challenge is a hands-on timed challenge, intended to jumpstart the creative process and teach students quick design problem-solving with a limited olfactory palette. The program is intended to allow participants to learn how to respond to design briefs of all varieties, while experimenting with aromatic materials and creative briefs.

After blending, participants will present their fragrance and thought process in composing their scent to the group. The completed scents and design inspiration will be on display at the IAO for the weeks following each session.

The design brief for the third Perfume Design Challenge comes from American writer and teacher Andrew Spear's manuscript "On Seeing Blue."

The Perfume Design Challenge is part of Open Sourcing Smell Culture, a year-long collaboration between the Institute for Art and Olfaction and Mediamatic exploring alternative attribution and sharing strategies for the perfume industry.
