The Sun installation
A ray of sunshine in the depth of winter, The Sun installation will provide an opportunity to relax in a 50’s style retro drive-in cinema, listen to the sounds of Simon and Garfunkel and let your worries disappear.

Road trips, music and synaesthesia combine to make this wonderful tangerine and sandalwood fragrance.

The Smell of Freedom installation
The Smell of Freedom installation will immerse you into the three stories behind the perfume in a way that will challenge your outlook on life and the freedom we are lucky to have.

When Gorilla Perfumer, Simon Constantine met three extraordinary people on his travels across the globe, he was inspired to create each of them a fragrance as a portrait of their struggle, their strength, their hope and their unwavering determination. The common factor in each of the tales was freedom and when these three fragrances were blended, they became The Smell of Freedom.

Whether capturing a wistful memory, taking influence from a musical muse or creating a scent for a certain magical moment, the Gorilla Perfumers use scent as a tool to interpret the world around them.
