Inaccessible Perfume is a conceptual olfactory design project whose installation consists in 15 monoliths where 15 perfumes are hidden inside and where the scent will be a denied and mysterious content. With a simultaneous air of mystique and irreverent playfulness, it represents the pleasure of this entirely new perfume experience: the wonder of discovery 

Three shells, in black, grey and white, each with their own texture, entirely envelop the bottles inside: sealed away from the senses, pure and untouched like modern fossils, suspended in cosmic time.

They are created in Glebanite, an innovative material made from recycled fiberglass, with an appearance that eludes classification, poised between natural and artificial, organic and inorganic. Fruit of an innovative, all-Italian ethical research project, it invites each individual spectator on a unique sensory journey.

Is it possible to touch a scent?  Hear it?  Inhabit it?

Designer Francesca Gotti faithfully reproduces the original brand indentity and selected 3 different perfumes from the Italian perfume house oneofthose meant to be hidden inside each monolith: the grey one for Oxygen [8O],  the black one for Sulphur [16S]  and the white one for Curium [96Cm].

Inaccessible Perfume monoliths are signed and numbered with a special packaging created for the installation.
One-of-a-kind Installations are available upon request.
