‘My! You smell divine. What’s the scent you’re wearing?’
‘Why thank you. It’s called Soos Creek.’
To capture my experiences with the Regional Trails over the past six months, I have been collecting materials that scent the various trail (from dirt and berries to coffee and cocoa pods) and distilling essential oils from them. I then mixed these oils into trail-specific fragrances. The process was alchemical and magical (similar to the trails themselves). One whiff of moss scent transports me back to the Preston Snoqualmie trail where I gather it.
Join me in Seattle, WA in Fremont on the Burke Gilman trail Friday October, 1, 2010 from 12:00 – 2:00, breath in my “fragrance collages”, and cloak yourself in the scent of the trails.
