Exhibition IP01 London: Perfumer Cecile Zarokian and Illustrator Matthieu Appriou

Come and greet perfumer Cécile Zarokian in London during IP01.
Cécile has developed an artistic project with an illustrator, Matthieu Appriou, leading previously to an exhibition in Paris, which was part of the event Rives de la Beauté,: the objective of [IP]01 was to correlate 6 visuals and 6 perfumes, in perfect harmony. One of the two universes gives birth to the other, then reverse: paint brush following olfactory narration, nose lead by sketch. Now in London, the adventure continues...

Exhibition 01

September 5th - October 4th 2013
Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm

Illuminum Lounge, 41 Dover Street, Mayfair
LondonW1S 4NS

What it involves
Cécile secretly creates 3 fragrances (1,2 and 3). Matthieu seizes the fragrances and translates them into visual emotions.
Matthieu creates 3 images (4,5 and 6). Cécile draws her inspiration from them and depicts the images olfactively.

Sounds like a morning or afternoon well spent!


  1. Love this concept. As an amateur artist, I'd like to try to visualize, then create a work from the scent I'm wearing today...Cuir 28 (Le Labo). This idea opens a new outlet for me...THANKS for the information.

  2. JW,

    you're welcome!
    It is an interesting coupling: olfactory and visual and Cecile & Matthieu have done well with their previous exhibition.
    I would love to see your work as well (do you upload it anywhere?)

  3. I don't upload my work. Most of my pieces stay right in my own home. Maybe someday...and I'll be sure to let you know. Thanks for your interest.

  4. Oh, thank you, that sounds like something I will enjoy. I do find it easier to describe perfume in colours, and have just started to blog about it.
