MOD SET | Creative Process Specimens
Primal Skin Scent | Natural Animalic Perfume
Explore the evolution of an artisan perfume in the making. Come behind the scenes of the scent alchemies that lead a perfumer on the path to curiosity, structure, emotional intention, and decision making. Vicariously feel, asses, critique, inquire, through each incarnation.
Soft Animal is the first perfume by GATHER to be centered around animal materials. Local and ethically sourced "musks" contribute characteristics inimitable in perfumery, giving them a long lineage of both lore and logic, as well as ubiquities efforts of imitation. In Soft Animal, tinctures of muskrat and castoreum create the anchor for an intimate experience of scent.
In this mod set, an installment of the Aromatic Muse project in which you, the patron, are included in a more exploratory journey of perfumery, the specimens are the focus. Taking you through the composition development from the first rough sketch, to the middle ground that weaves through different approaches, to the almost final prototype.
Your feedback will be requested, and will help to inform the final batch of Soft Animal.
Mod set will include at least 6 vials of prototypes, a brief write up, and a discount code to use towards the final perfume when it launches.
