One Sick Scent. Austin Young’s Accident Perfume By Brent Leonesio.


Art comes in many forms and scent is yet another wonderfully unique medium that can be used as expression, such is the case with ‘Accident’ Perfume.

The Institute for Art and Olfaction is an arts organization hosting educational workshops, a library and experimental projects that use the medium of scent. To help support the crowd-sourced participatory experience and musical: ‘TBD’, the IAO invited perfumer Brent Leonesio to collaborate with the provocateur Austin Young on a limited art edition.

The result? A very unique scent in artful bottles promoted with wild posters.

THE SMELL:

For the perfume itself, Brent Leonesio of Smellbent set out to find olfactory beauty in unexpected places. Leonesio describes Accident as ‘the lingering whiff of gasoline on your fingertips that you can’t stop sniffing; the familiar and the strange; the contrast elucidated when exotic floral extracts hold hands with other-worldly aroma chemicals. Accident is a collision of ideas, a harmonic discord.’


Base Notes: Gasoline vapor, Perfume spilled down a bucket seat, Safety glass, A smoking tire, A last minute dab of face powder, The smell of a mechanic.

THE BOTTLES:


Austin Young’s ‘Accident’ by Brent Leonesio comes in a black glass stopper bottle that was hand-transformed by Young in keeping with the style he developed through over 30 years of photographic and experiential arts practice. Each of the 40ml hand-assembled bottles are unique and come in a numbered box. They are intended as an art piece, and were created in an edition of 100.

THE PROMOTIONAL POSTERS:
With the help of graphic designer Micah Hahn of AutumnSeventy, the package design and marketing campaigns become tools with which to reexamine the concepts of beauty, glamour, luxury and mass appeal.
