The Scent Story

Burner Perfume No.7: Red Dodecahedron is woody, ambery and resinous with an unusual apple opening. Each note used in the composition relates to the shape, texture, and form depicted in a da Vinci drawing. The Spice and Black Pepper top note accord, paired with Apple (the apple note is implied, there are no apple-scented compounds in this design), hint at the airy openness of the skeletal form and give a rusty, red hue that reflects the antiqued red ink of the drawing. A rich, fruity Rose/Chamomile Accord follows, further reinforcing the colors and roundness of the form. While we don’t know for certain, it is likely that da Vinci would have made a model of the dodecahedron to draw from. I imagined such a model made of a light weight wood with a slightly rough texture. This material and texture inform the base notes of the composition, a Wood Accord that features Mysore Sandalwood, Limbwood, Patchouli, Frankincense, and a bit of benzoin.

Burner Perfume** No7: Red Dodecahedron
Inspired by the Burning Man art theme for 2016—da Vinci’s Workshop—this perfume is based on a drawing that da Vinci created to illustrate a book about sacred geometry, De Divina Porportione by Luca Pacioli. Da Vinci did a series of drawings and sketches for the book that are both beautiful and fascinating. Many of the complex shapes were rendered in colored ink as both solids and skeletal forms, all with da Vinci’s precision and attention to detail. Their interesting shapes and the color of the old ink really spoke to me and inspired me to create a perfume that reflected one of the drawings specifically, a red dodecahedron.
