Durruty and Guedj share a common artistic ideal focusing around the theme of travel depicted through the senses and sensations. This is vividly brought to life in this highly visual book, with images of nature contrasting with bustling city shots, and all inspired by the scents of Kenzo's different perfumes. Captions below the stunning photographs explain the links between image and smell. From the humidity of the Amazon forest to the scorched lands of the Kenyan savannah, from the azure Chilean skies to the nighttime streets of Tokyo, the journey through Kenzo's visions is poetic and sensual. These photographs illustrate abstract nature scenes in which the tiniest detail paves the way to wonder. This exploration of the colourful world of Kenzo perfumes invites readers to indulge all of their senses.
