Evoking the senses this summer and embracing fragrance

Inspired by Somerset House exhibition Perfume: A Sensory Journey Through Contemporary Scent, gpstudio, has dedicated their Arch Window exhibition space to the ‘art of fragrance’. This exhibition will be on display until early September 2017

Sarah Smart, an illustrator from Lipstick of London found inspiration in the fragrance (which contains hints of Geranium Leaf, Mandarin Rind and Bergamot) to create colourful illustrations of women, perfume bottles and an array of flowers. Sarah used her creative skills to draw the illustrations onto the glass of the Arch Window, bringing the scent to life in a visual display of colour.


She explained her thoughts on drawing these illustrations, “I was inspired not only by the ingredients but the way it made me feel. I felt it has quite a mischievous and sexy feel to it, hence the ladies I chose to use. There was a strong feminine scent and I wanted that to come across quite playfully which is why I chose big bright and bold illustrations to cover the glass window.”
