“This scent was inspired by the contrast of a hard sewing machine agains soft fabric. Piercing black pepper evokes the feeling of the cold, sharp metal; a vinyl accord represents the rubber; rose and raspberry are the delicate red silk being pushed through the sewing machine and the growing arousal of the designer as the needle pierces in and out the fabric. A hint of creamy musk lingers in the background, capturing the sensuality of the arousal.« — Christelle Laprade
FOLIE À PLUSIEURS/PERFORMANCE
Time, Space, Body, Audience. A performance series conceived through a series of olfactive happenings and collaborations. For each performance a scent is developed to aid the experience of a specific body of work. Some of these fragrances are offered for sale at select museums shops and Folie À Plusieurs, and others only available on location exclusively for guest that attend each performance.
»Ol·fac·to PHILIA« consists of 18 sexual expressions experienced through sound, performance and scent. Each fragrance translates a specific paraphilic experience taken from the personal accounts of 18 different individuals. These fragrances chart the sensory and emotional experience associated with each individual’s unusual erotic impulse. The project aims to expand audiences sensorial appreciation for intimacy and to stimulate an openness towards alternative modes of sensuality.
