‘Molecules’, Series 1 – The Institute for Art and Olfaction

Gal_250x300_03We commissioned L.A. based design studio AutumnSeventy to create a series of prints on topics related to perfumery.

Fascinated by the structures of scent molecules, they decided to focus the work on the molecular structures of important perfume ingredients.

The first three prints produced in this series relate to crucial aroma-molecules in 20th century perfume: Galaxolide (IFF), Aldehyde C12 (Givaudan), and Iso E Super (IFF).
