Wallpaper Magazine commissioned Thomas Brown in an unusual way for this abstract and evocative series. Fragrance specialists, Ormaie in Paris, renowned for their naturalistic perfumes, described in olfactory terms the experience of their woodland scents and sent the photographer samples of their ingredients. Made in collaboration with set designer Andrew Stellitano, these images conjure up the fragrances visually.
"Scents can be subjective and intangible so the approach was to create and abstract with moments of clarity, which quickly disappear just as quickly as they appear." – Thomas Brown
