When perfumery meets the art of Rothko

The parallels between painting and perfume creation are truly strong and I like to believe the two art forms are intrinsically connected in they’re approach to colours, textures and intricate layering techniques. This is why I have decided to compose three perfumes that will take some of my favourite paintings and turn them into olfactory artworks. The artist of choice is none other than Markus Rothkowitz or as most of the world knows him – Rothko. This experimental group of perfumes will be entitled the Sonic Alchemy Rothko Series and will be some of my most forward thinking work to date.

Black in Deep Red is the first perfume to be completed in the Rothko Series and is based on a painting that features large black shapes surrounded by red and a rectangle that showcases a number of different hues of red. To capture the austere rawness of this black section I blended a heart note of black agarwood and black pepper that forms an edgy dark accord running through the entire perfume. The lighter red tones of this painting act as the top note and I’ve used pink pepper, pink grapefruit and raspberry to encapsulate this vivid and textural pinkish red. This helps to disguise the black heart note at the start providing the event of an olfactive crescendo shortly into the progression of the fragrance.

One of the most challenging parts of this perfume was distilling the deep red qualities of the painting and discovering how to embody this in the perfume. Bulgarian rose along with spiced iris elements brings a blood red aspect as well as a sweetness that counteracts the black heart note. Black in Deep Red finishes off with a dry woodsy base note that displays guaiacwood, pink musk and Virginian cedarwood. This section of the perfume captures the paintings background where reds mix with grainy browns to form a subtly beautiful ending to a truly unique perfume experience.
