Recently, I attended the Six Scents Series Three launch event, because you can't go wrong merging fashion and perfume, especially when both are married in an effort to celebrate creativity, and bring awareness to a charitable cause.
Each year the co-Founder of Six Scents, Joseph Quartana skillfully recruits six of the top artists and perfumers to collaborate on a limited-edition fragrance, where a percentage of proceeds will go towards a charity, and for this series War Child International will benefit.
Upon entering the venue I noticed a series of short films, created exclusively to coincide with the line of perfumes, along with a documentary trailer of the creative process streaming on the wall. My eyes were glued to the short with Julia Roitfeld draped in an all white lace hijab — the story was edited by teen fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson. This year Givaudan perfumers were paired with fashion designers Alexis Mabille, Mary Katrantzou, Juun. J, Rad Hourani, N. Hollywood, and Ohne Titel. Their task was to explore the nature of childhood memories and the influence of adolescence on identity. My favorite scent was entitled M by Ohne Titel and Yann Vasnier. It was a mix of cardamom, safraleine and leather materials — truly divine.
