From 10 to 25 November 2022, Parisian haute perfumery brand Maison 21G will present A Polysensorial Reconnection, its first one-of-a-kind immersive experience in Singapore. The multi-sensory exhibition will shine the spotlight on the works of photographer Lee Yik Keat, digital illustrator André Wee, DJ and producer MYRNE.
Each multidisciplinary artist has brought to life their artistic interpretations of these 5 iconic accords Floral, Aquatic, Woody, Citrus and Amber, curated by Maison 21G Founder and Master Scent Designer, Johanna Monange. An exclusive blend of Woody and Floral families inspired by Andre’s digital illustration, La Création, will also be showcased at this exhibition.
“Smell is the most difficult sense to quantify or describe, and I would like to challenge Yik Keat, André and MYRNE to go beyond the expected prisms of visual art and music to break the codes of sensory perception,” said Johanna Monange, Maison 21G Founder and Master Scent Desi.
Yik Keat captured the essence of each scent family and overlay them with more texture to highlight how different ingredients blend perfectly together to create perfumery magic.
In a never-heard-before approach, MYRNE produced five exclusive tracks showcasing how each scent would sound like. Enjoy Yik Keat’s photos while listening to these tracks specially created for each accord by MYRNE for a fully immersive experience.
André accurately captured the endless perfumery possibility blooming within a bottle when you mix two different accords together, leaving you mesmerized by the beauty of scent creation.
Special collection of the 6 curated perfumes – Floral, Aquatic, Woody, Citrus, Amber, La Création will be available for purchase in 30ml EDP (SGD 150) and 100ml EDP (SGD 320) during 10 to 25 November 2022.
