STANDARD SMELLS: Symrise has teamed with Six Scents to create fragranced botanical artwork for The Standard Spa in Miami in conjunction with Art Basel. The joint project between the German fragrance and flavors supplier and the scent maker runs from Dec. 1-4 and features two sculptures made of plants, flowers and spices inspired by the historic Hanging Gardens of Babylon. In tandem, Symrise perfumer David Apel concocted two fragrances to evoke the hotel gardens. Verde is based on notes of jasmine, green galbanum resin and dried iris root, while Incense by the Sea conjures up a beach bonfire, pairing woody incense with fresh salty sea notes. The limited-edition scents are available for purchase at the Standard Shop or on its Web site for $35 per 15-ml. bottle. Six Scents is a regular participant at Art Basel Miami, but the project marks a debut at the event for Symrise. Other fragrances are in the air at this year’s art fair, too. As reported, Johan Lindeberg of BLK DNM is also launching a scent there — Perfume 11, created by Robertet.
