Raw Essence
by Julie de Mol

Hay, pine and beeswax form the heart of Julie de Mol’s collection of outdoor scents for the home. Rather than reproducing these scents however, Julie uses the fragrant raw materials themselves in three ‘scent sculptures’. Two of her aromatic eyecatchers are assembled to create a specific bouquet while also evoking the intimate nature of a living space. Created for the kitchen, the third object absorbs smell instead of releasing it. The material, shape and function of the essences and absorbents in each piece are inspired by the use of such raw materials in history and their power to influence our wellbeing and surroundings.
