When you see something, does a scent come to mind?
Sensing synaesthesia — the sensation of perfumed visualization.

For a long time, we’ve been fascinated by the idea of hearing color, tasting sound, touching scent — the notion, rather the condition, the syndrome of synaesthesia.
While the condition is rare, the crossing of senses comes to the
richness of holistic experience -
and the poetry of intermingling.

THE SCENT OF COLOUR

We feel like we have that syndrome,
which reveals itself in dreams,
or the dreaminess of the present reality –
where the sensing of experience flutters
between the layers of sensation –
an intermixture, an amalgam occurs.

THE SCENT OF COLOUR

It has to be just right — but it does happen — a touch reveals a sound, taste becomes a hearing — color = scented perfume. You might’ve experienced that, too.

A note from our friends at PSFK shares that telling in another that we admire, have written about, gifted and collected: Frederick Malle. We wrote about him here — in a tour with another perfumer, organic fragrance artist Amanda Walker, from NYC.

She and I met there,
at Malle’s NYC studio,
to explore his world.
