Six Scents is a collection of six gorgeous unisex fragrances created by Givaudan perfumers alongside six up and coming designers, 'who will one day be big enough to have their own fragrance but who are too small to have it just yet' according to Joseph Quartana, co-founder and collection curator of Six Scents Parfums.
To accompany the scents, there’s a series of films. One of which – by Alia Raza – called Le Viol de la Méduse, stars Julia Restoin Roitfeld, was executive produced by Derek Blasberg and has a screenplay written by none other than underage fashionista Tavi Gevinson. The film is a contemporary reworking of the tale of Medusa and it relates to the fragrance because, according to Raza, the scent contains the ‘the objects that map her [Medusa’s] suffering — gardenia and tuberose flowers, dried leaves and incense, black sand and white powder, cigarettes and scotch whiskey.” Well, OBVS.
Now, this translates on screen as some mirror-licking, lipstick-pouting fierceness that is somewhere between a GCSE drama project and the Kylie video for ‘Where The Wild Roses Grow’.
We, naturally, love it.
