Libertine Fragrance - ep3 - MakersMoment
04.24.2019 - By Royal Bison Art and Craft Fair
This episode is all about the art world of smells. Yup, perfume. Josh Smith of Libertine Fragrance has been making scents for five years, since he made a perfume for a design school project. He tells us about the weird world of perfumes, the existence of scent reviewers (with YouTube channels! What!) and about his first career in forestry - it’s rad to hear designers and makers come from all sorts of places.
We’ll hear about how perfume school is a thing, about making scents in Edmonton, the inspiration behind Josh’s perfumes (and a little history lesson on 19th century France), and making friends through smells. Josh tells us how perfume is a really good way to look at issues around sustainability and climate change, why we might all smell differently in the future, and where the idea of perfuming came from.
