Diary of Smells

This site documents Diary of Smells, an on-going, multi-sensorial project by Josely Carvalho in which she directly uses natural and artificial scents as protagonists among other typically dominant visual and sound components in her installations.

Smell of Wet Earth / Cheiro de Terra Molhada

The accord Wet Earth is a mixture of humid, earthy, woody notes, with tones of fallen green leaves about the roots, mosses, resins that run from the trunks of trees, and the rainwater that floods the earth with its crying. (text from Givaudan do Brasil for the catalog Nidus Vitreo)

Smell of Hot Sun / Cheiro de Sol Quente

The accord Hot Sun represents the full force and power of nature. It is metallic, pungent, profound smell that simultaneously pleases and burns, warming us with its heat. Exactly how nature responds in accordance to man’s treatment of her. (text from Givaudan do Brasil in the catalogue Nidus Vitreo)
