“The Beginning of Curiosity” is an installation of deformed objects with imaginary scents. The fictional scenery is a metaphor to our identities which are fluid like water and vague like fragrances.

Visitors are encouraged to experience the works with critical minds, as having the curiosity to reasoning our world is how we begin to explore ones cultures and identities.

1. Pungeon Smell Of Unknown (Key)

Scent notes: A sharp metallic feel is mimicked with an ozonic herbal fragrance where rosemary leaves are uplifted by cool mint and heather, smoothened with pine and cedarwood.

2. Drink Me (POTION)

Scent notes: Fresh white birch, sweet Madagascar vanilla, and warm sandalwood, on top is a light touch almond, clove and maple to resemble the crispy smoky roast

3. Psychedelic Journey (MUSHROOM)

Scent notes: Bitter, wet, dirt with a green herbal touch of eucalyptus.

4. Steamy Pot Never Run Out Of Shots (TEAPOT)

Scent notes: Light citrus notes are followed with hints of peonies, lavender and geranium on a base of sandalwood and musk.

5. The Presence Of Time Is Infinite (CLOCK) “ The meaning of “O’clock is rigid, but the presence of time is infinite.”

Scent notes: Rich smoky woody accord with guaicwood, birch tar, amber and cedarwood

6. Only if u believe it is (HATTER) “Trust me. I know a thing or two about falling in love, and in time, after much chocolate and cream cake, 'like' turns into 'what was his name again?'.”

Scent notes: Roasted coffee enriched by precious woods, amber, and vanilla. top note of fresh citrus and a hint of chocolate.

7. We're all mad (Cat)

Scent notes: A colourful yet mysterious floral with a light spicy note, enriched with earthy notes of coriander, warm musk and cedarwood.

As a metaphor for our identity, the classic Alice in Wonderland has been restructured in the form of 3D origami art with a unique scent.
