FOLIE À PLUSIEURS

Film

REMEMBERING, TRANSLATING AND EXPANDING MOMENTS IN FILM THROUGH FRAGRANCE

 

Through an ongoing series of olfactive film screening held at independent cinemas and art institutions worldwide of cult, classic, independent and contemporary films, an exclusive fragrance is created out of a perfumers personal response to a specific moment / scene in a film. The final scent is then integrated into the film screening experience and later launched as a perfume under FOLIE À PLUSIEURS fragrance archive.
