This work is part of a study for a larger installation piece inspired while working in the North East of England. Aside from the famous history of coal mining in the region, it is also home to the popular men's aftershave "Old Spice". Here it was mass-produced in the same area of industrial landscape. Fragrance and geology are both composed in strata, this series is seen as different notes of a fragrance of my thinking. "Top notes are nutmeg, lemon, orange, star anise and aldehydes; middle notes are carnation, jasmine, geranium, cinnamon, heliotrope and pimento; base notes are ambergris, benzoin, cedar, vanilla, tonka bean and musk."
