• At Colette now – your chance to smell every fragrance release of 2012. All at once!

    Dutch artists Lernert & Sander's latest artwork is a perfume entitled 'Everything' and is a mixture of 1400 fragrance launches from 2012. The perfume is packaged in a specially designed and hand blown bottle, based on a sample vial. You can see and try the fragrance at Colette, 213 Rue St-Honoré in Paris until 9th March. See more in the video below:

      Didn't Diptyque already do this with 34 Blvd. St. Germain ?

      (Ps. I think it's Sander, like the machine, not Sandler, like the annoying actor).

      What if it actually smells good? Honestly I can not imagine this mess but as a conceptual art project it is an awsome idea. Somebody, just describe the notes! LOL.

      This is pretty awesome.

      If you took some big whiffs of it, I wonder if it would result in an instant habituation (inability to smell) all 1400 fragrances...

      Better yet, find someone to put it through a gas chromatograph, and discover how redundant or not they are!

      I'll bet it will smell like that scent you smell in the air when you walk into the fragrance department of a huge department store like Macy's or Selfridge's. Don't deny it, it's a delicious smell - the combination of every fragrance that's been shpritzed that day or week or month. I often wish that odor could be captured, and maybe now it has been.

      Fourteen HUNDRED!??? That's about 1300 too many. Yikes.

      ^ I guess the hole point is that it's 1399 too many.

      Mildly interesting, however.
