Alexandra Bachand I WAR Flowers: an immersive and olfactory narration through the artistry of scent


Alexandra Bachand is a graduate in perfumery and has been a student of indie perfumers in France and the United States. She has a background in computer graphics and multimedia, a certificate in visual arts, as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Bishops University in Lennoxville.

Her artistic approach is based on the art of perfume, which she formulates and designs within installations as a major art medium. Her work seeks to convey an immersive narrative through history in order to pay tribute to the past. The process of writing the perfume is thus fundamental, conveying all the work of emotionality of the artist. This excludes any perspective of a simple odorization. The artistic work is the perfume itself created by the creator. This medium implies a long period of writing, then composition of the perfume made exclusively by the artist, in order to transmit all the authenticity necessary to convey a narrative framework in all its emotionality. Alexandra draws on historical research to compose the perfume, like olfactory artifacts with the intention of communicating a symbolic dimension imbued with poetry.

«The most striking quality of the perfume is to carry us through memories and time. Guided by emotions, olfaction awakes memory and allows a trip otherwise impossible.»
