Shigenobu Twilight is a limited edition handcrafted scent by NY based artist Anicka Yi and architect Maggie Peng. The scent uses three different kinds of cedar wood as its base note, along with violet leaf and nutty heart notes, and top notes of yuzu, shiso leaf, and black pepper. The packaging for this hand-distilled fragrance is made of raw cedar wood, each one uniquely hand-cut in architectural geometry, encasing a 10ml glass bottle of liquid within.
We worked on graphics, a short film and and produced an event to launch the second edition of 50 units.
Anicka created multiple fragrance tablets impregnated with the fragrance Shigenobu Twilight for an exhibition at GAMeC in Bergamo, Italy. These sculptures are part of an ongoing umbrella project she has been developing called the Flavor Genome. This project seeks to explore an elaborate mapping of subjectivities through the concept of “flavors”, taking reality as an elaborate matrix of perceived unique essences. We worked with Anicka to design and produce packaging for the fragrance tablets that were inserted into the exhibition catalog.
