The JOURNEY OF SPICE & PERFUME

THE LAYERING OF EXPERIENTIAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES OF THE TRANS-SENSATIONAL EXPERIENCE: LAYERING STORY, TASTE, TOUCH, SCENT AND THE HEARING OF THE WHOLE BEING. WORKING in Oregon, I met with a taste innovation strategist — a woman who, along with my team, as well as a client team, in exploring the modeling for how the taste of a product, particularly in the layered sensuality of a spice notation, could be designed. I use the wording “no… Continue reading

A TOUCHING BOOK

…he notations of a journey, you’ll recall the sights you beheld, but too – tastes that were savored; sounds that were heard, touches in a place that culled the heart and heat of a moment – and instances of scent: a forgotten alleyway, a long fragrance waft of forest, sea, heated sand. While in scent, you might be challenged to notate the structure of a scent experience: “what exactly was I smelling?” Never mind … Continue reading

Spice, Perfume, Taste, Scent and Strategic Design

can act on the instincts of defining how experiencers sense holism – designing: an experiential designer, will know the layers of sensation. How? Practice in play. How about this synaesthetic triad? Mix it up – scent, spice, music, design. One, perfume; two, flavor. Three, music. When I was in Parma, I met this woman, a nose, fragrance designer Laura Tonnato – I was traveling with a group – exploring Italian perfume des… Continue reading

Could you feel me?

…. I could react to a place by studying the calculated candle power, the math of lumens in a lit space, or measuring acoustics, or touch the materiality of texture and study the nature of epidermal reaction – sense heat, scent fragrance, examine taste, or bask in the wholeness of sight – gathering in the whirlpools of impression, measuring the character of messages and visuals. All that could be done — but in the end, it will be… Continue reading

When I Come In, What Happens to Me?

…er: – street, and the story found there; – entry, and story told at the shop windows; – doorway, and what happens there? Entering this place, an experiencer crosses the threshold — what happens? Light, scent, color, texture. Entry placement, spectacle, windows, pathways — who is there, and how do they make their way through — and to where, they are going? Walking, surveilling any environment, we watch, quiet &#… Continue reading

TAKES ALL KINDS

…e — in exploring a brand, a relationship of a customer, you need to step-in, further and further. Ask to get closer: Like, for example – in their house – what about lighting, color, materials, sound, music, scent, their art, their photographs, they’re displaying their visible storytelling – how people display their lives. How too: their Office? Bedroom? Kitchen? Bathroom? All places, well-studied, shall be for stor… Continue reading

THE ARCHITECTURE OF PERFUME — THE PORTAL FROM ONE PLACE TO AN OTHER

ive to build her offerings, her story, and, and in her environments in which those experiences are told. I’ve commented on her perfumes in the past — a string of observations on the extremely unusual nature of her scent structures. They’re simple, but complicated. Incenses that tell stories about places — yet still, there is no story that can be found. Perfumes of trees, that just are; without explanation or positioning. A… Continue reading

The Perfume that is You

You smell. Where you go, where you’ve been, what you remember is what holds you. You have a scent, whether you’re wearing a perfume or not. And you’ve smelled things, places you’ve been, things you’ve remembered. What were they? The point might be, in the boost to the you-ness of you, how might you elevate that? Think of places you’ve been, points of exploration — a deep and dark forest, hiking up a mea… Continue reading

THE WAKE OF PERFUME, SEX SILLAGE

THE PERFUME THAT FOLLOWS YOU. As you’re walking the street, a hallway, a waft of scent flows by. Multiple “perfumes of place” drift — if you’re open, you’re scenting them. As well, you’re scenting — the fragrance of you, the trailing scent of you — it drifts behind you, subtle or strengthened. Such is the notion of sillage [a French word] – the wake of scent. And, as shown below, a wil… Continue reading

BE HAPPY

MEDITATIONS ON BEING. AND HAPPINESS. In the range of travel, I’ve seen some of the most remarkably dismal, difficult and challenging “survival-focused” environments. And the people in them. Still, smiles emerge. Yes, these New Dehli school girls below likely have plenty going for them, still — on that day, approaching 100ยบ, the street was alive in squalor, the scent of sewage flowed like a miasma, electrical lines were a… Continue reading
