Creation of a perfume from idea to making.
Every object is both unique and intimately linked to what inspires it or what it is made of. The representation of a whole friend in just one intimate object, the perfume bottle, is a rich and complex task. A first part of the exercice has to grasp the different sides of the personality, then we can mock-up what we have found about the person.

Understanding and sketching
This perfume I chose to create it for Audrey, a friend of mine. First of all I tried to question her on her passions, inspirations and also to think about the way I was seeing her.
To do this I did many form study’s sketches, as well as a moodboard transcribing her so special identity.
The final shape of Oroya
Understanding Audrey to create Oroya, named from a tiny cactus. Moodboard.
A simple shape, transparency and green shade.
The two parts of the packaging both made of green marble and aluminum interlock, softly hiding the perfume.
Oroya and the packaging : The aluminium cap, the glass bottle and the marble side of it.
I chose to make a resin mock-up. This transparent material was ideal to represent the ambivalence of OROYA : both sweet and solid.
