Burner Perfume No.9B: Synthetic Sex
"Virtual reality augmented by scent
To remind us of bodies we once possessed;
A potent chemical cocktail produces pleasures
A metallic animalic
Both near and far from our present existence."
We are more closely connected via our ever evolving communication systems and yet more physically alone than ever. Sex, once the most intimate of acts now exists in a virtual reality. Ironically, we seek to engage our physical senses to make the virtual more real. Our most primitive sense—smell—is utilized to remind us of our physical selves as we explore the virtual universe.
An intimacy with an entity that is not human.
Notes: Virtual Space Accord, Warm Metal Accord, Seriously Sexual Accord

Burner Perfumes**No.9A, 9B, 9C: The AI Series
The Scent Story
Artificial Intelligence—whether you find it fascinating or frightening—it’s a fast-paced field that is rich with new ideas and technologies. Ever since I read my first Sci-Fi book, I’ve been intrigued by the possibilities presented by AI in all its applications. When I learned that the Burning Man art theme for 2018 was “I Robot”, I knew the time had come to turn my AI fascination into a perfumer’s brief—the end result—three perfumes and three poems that explore AI from its most abstract form to more physical applications.

**Burning Man-Inspired Perfumes
Burning Man, a week-long event in experimental community building, is a great source of artistic joy and inspiration. Each Burning Man event has a theme which inspires a profusion of fabulous art from its participants. I create a yearly “Burner Perfume” based on these themes. The first run of every Burner Perfume is given away at Burning Man as my artistic gift to the community.

I want you to love your purchase! The best way to ensure this is to try a sample size before investing in a full size product. Remember that everyone has unique skin chemistry so it pays to "try before you buy".
Since perfume is a body product, I can't except returns for obvious hygiene concerns. The exceptions to this rule would be an incorrect item being shipped or a faulty mechanism such as a sprayer that didn't work.
