Abstract in April… The Perfumed Dandy is Inspired Again

IMG_20140331_214029

March was a maelstrom.

A magnificently busy month, crammed with meetings and movement, people and places, but sadly, very little perfume.

As exciting as the last thirty one days have been, they have also been remarkably, regrettably unscented.

Time to put that right.

A chance visit to a Bond Street gallery where the American artist Dale Chihuly, the man who is to glass as Dan Flavin was to electric light and Andy Warhol to silk screens, has a show on has quite reinvigorated The Dandy.

Strange how the senses are so connected: the sight stimulated, smell craves the same treatment.

A few images today that just miss capturing the all encompassing joyfulness of this collection of seemingly organic man made, hand blown glass enormities.

Tomorrow, some scents to go with these amphorae, vases and jars.

Their amorphous forms are so suggestive of aromas… perhaps you have a few fragrant thoughts of your own.

Any olfactory ideas occur?

If they did do share.

I will tomorrow.

Hope you liked the images.

Yours ever
