Perfumeland was abuzz with discussion about OpenSky and Chandler Burr’s idea of selling perfume as is, i.e. without packaging and advertising surrounding and cluttering the olfactory artwork.
This Friday, June 29, Chandler will be revealing the identity of the mystery scent S01E01. Live at 12noon EST on OpenSky he will reveal the scent in addition to explaining why he chose it and some history behind the brand. Chandler will then open up the discussion and answer questions and comments live through his Facebook feed on his OpenSky profile.
Are you curious what it is? Will you be joining the discussion?
UPDATE: S01E01 is Prada’s Infusion d’Iris by Daniela Andrier.
And this is what Chandler says about the next perfume in line, S02E02:
“E02 is a work of olfactory science fiction. It is not merely the morphing of the eau fraîche into a 22nd century form (which would be feat enough), it is the scent of a plant, a lovely curling vine, in a garden built in outer space. It is the green scent of the plant’s delicate green tentacles and its graceful leaves in the precious, pressurized air circulating in cool post-metal tubes, a perfect equilibrium of the heartbreakingly natural and the mesmerizingly artificial.”
Any guesses? Reading that my first thought is Mugler Cologne… we’ll see next month if I’m right. ;)
