Coming in Winter 2019
For several years Nuri has been exploring the relationship between death rituals and the use of aromatic materials. This has led her to many strange places, smelling many odd and wonderful things. She has been developing fragrances that do more than adorn the body but gladden the soul, in order to create olfactive memento mori to remind each of us of the brevity of time and the immediacy of pleasure.
While Nuri originally planned to feature her creations in an interactive gallery installation, interest quickly grew in the juices themselves, which has led to the launch of the fragrance line ATROPOS, in late 2019. The line features compositions based on the research Nuri has done with the Death/Scent project ranging from reconstructing the Odour of Sanctity in a feminine rose fragrance to making a modern cologne based on the herbs Plague Doctors used in their beaked masks to ward off the Black Death.
