[Version française]

The project originates from the meeting of an illustrator, Matthieu Appriou, and a perfumer, Cécile Zarokian.

The two artists decide to express their creativity away from any commercial or marketing approach by setting the brief themselves.
They alternate in leading and setting up the rules for the other.

The objective is to correlate 6 visuals and 6 perfumes, in perfect harmony.
Each perfume is an olfactory illustration of an image.
Each watercolour expresses a perfume.

Thus, the perfume becomes an illustrative scent and the illustration is the image of the perfume.

They are complementary representations of reality or of subjective interpretation of sensations.
One of the two universes gives birth to the other, then reverse: paint brush following olfactory narration, nose lead by sketch.
