Unsettled A new perfume, a "poster" and an extraordinary glowing, blow-cast, uranium glass bottle. Commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art
The fragrance takes inspiration from the complex history of the sandalwood and tea trade in the South Pacific: Australians seeking sandalwood to trade with China in exchange for tea drove initial contact with island cultures that ultimately led to their colonization. It is also inspired by a pineapple and leather themed perfume called “Colony,” launched by the house of Jean Patou in 1938 that was offered in a pineapple shaped bottle that looks a bit like a hand-grenade. Notes: bergamot, china black tea, clary sage, pineapple, new caledonian sandalwood, labdanum, vanilla, ocean breezes.
•The scent uses a sustainably harvested sandalwood from New Caledonia.
