We’ve been meaning to share some new work with you all for a while know, but getting around to actually doing it has been easy said than done!
First off is Odette Toilette, the perfume lover behind Scratch+Sniff events. Under the banner of providing olfactory adventures for both perfume experts and those new to fragrance alike, her events offer unusual ways of discovering the world of scent. From collaborations with the wine industry to fragranced tours of the Tate’s Pre-Raphaelite exhibition, cake-fuelled Vintage scent afternoons and a creative exchange between perfumers and writers, the world of Odette has fast become the place to go for new experiences with smell.
We’ve been lucky enough to attend a few of Odette’s events in the Bookclub and have always had a really great and interesting time. Check out Odette’s Scratch+Sniff events page for your chance to take a look (and smell) at fragrance in a different way.
We designed Odette Toilette’s identity and stationery as well as the pot pourri Odette launched in collaboration with horticulturalist, Stephen Nelson.
Blend #1 of Odette Toilette’s Pot Pourri is limited to 250 pots. Each pot contains over two litres of rose petals, macerated until heady. This heart is surrounded by aromatics including lemon verbena, mint, Russian coriander, bay, sweet marjoram and cured lemon peel. Resins of benzoin, storax and tonka bean bring warmth and comfort.
The pot pourri’s midnight-black clay pot was hand-made in an artisinal pottery near York. Each pot is £45 (+p&p) and available to buy via the Odette Toilette website.
Blend #2 will follow soon – so watch this space.
