Chandler Burr: The Untitled Series is a series for people to experience perfumes without any preconceptions based on the name, packaging or promotional materials. Each month Burr will select a scent, and produce a limited number of bottles in unmarked packaging. "The series exists to create an unknown context for these things. It’s a way of seeing with fresh eyes.", say LuckyScent who are selling the fragrances.
Of S02E02, Burr says:
I've never met anyone who doesn't like S02E02. In dozens of talks over the years, I've given it to thousands of people in all sorts of cultures, and the range is pleased enthusiasm to hypnotized worship. I'm on the far latter end. Done by one of the greatest living artists, who I'm very glad finally to be presenting in the Untitled Series, S02E02 is I think a quietly seminal work in a specific way: We all know the majority of people today say they 'don't like perfume.' By 'perfume' they mean aldehydes and a booming voice and 'look at me' style. S02E02 forces you to redefine 'perfume.' Wait (people think, transfixed on the sidewalk), what is this? Did an island just materialize around the corner? E02 is the Debussy bridge over which one escapes Rachmaninoff's bombast, transport for all those who yearn for the fundamentally different and exquisite, the liltingly lovely.”
The fragrance will be revealed in a few weeks time
