Diamonds Are Forever

Last night I had the honour of scenting a screening of Diamonds Are Forever as part of the Gorilla Perfume team at Inspace gallery in Edinburgh to celebrate the 50th anniversary of James Bond. Whilst the particular scents I used shall remain a mystery, my good friend and colleague Ericka Duffy, a scent technician with Gorilla, put together an ingenious selection of olfactory delights to convey the film in scent; smokey, woody, tobacco notes to symbolise Mr Wint and flirtatious vanilla for Miss Case to note just a couple. Jonathan Prior provided some aural treats in the form of a Bond-tastic DJ set and Paul Tvaroh of Lounge Bohemia created these amazing – and delicious – gin and tonic ‘diamonds’, so every sense was catered for, even touch in the form of fragranced silk handkerchiefs at a particular moment during the screening. It was a truly fantastic evening with very talented people, one that my senses will remember for a long time to come.
