An artists journey of senses
A little change in the name and a new burst of spring inspiration led me to a new body of work upon arriving home from Europe. To keep things simple I used my initials be. and a little play on words with a perfume range named... be.awakened with fragrances to follow its story. It is a collection of senses and as an artist I use sight, smell and taste as inspiration to express myself within. Art, fragrance and taste draws upon my families heritage and the inspiration and beauty of Europe. You will find here a collection of watercolours, limited edition artworks, recipes from an old world and a story of perfume crafted from my travels to take you on a journey of half-remembered dreams, beautiful places near and far, old and new, awakening the senses.
I hope you enjoy. be. x
This image was taken when I was in Sicily enjoying a Mediterranean summer with the freedom of travelling on my own. It is the first scent created in the collection.
be.free Bask under a Mediterranean sun where baskets of brightly coloured geraniums hang from balconies and the warm evening air is filled with the perfume of delicate flowers. Sensual, floral notes of ylang ylang, rose geranium and palmarosa are held in the warm embrace of vanilla. Therapeutic values: uplifting. comforting. balancing. aphrodisiac.
An artwork inspired by the soft hues of Europe and the nudes of Gustav Klimt and Egon Sheila where I spent many an hour devouring the galleries and streets of Vienna, birthplace of my ancestors.
