    A new essay on scent and memory by Lee C. Wallick

    We're excited to present an essay and collection of interviews by writer Lee C. Wallick, which were created to sit alongside our Maison Martin Margiela's SHOWcabinet exhibition. Written on the subject of scent and memory, Wallick's essay spins an engaging narrative of the relationship between the sense of smell and emotional experiences.

    'Scent is our super-power when it comes to memory. It stands alone amongst our senses. Many believe it is our first to develop.'

    Wallick also interviews the perfumers who created the Replica fragrances on their own scent memories, further enforcing the deeply personal nature of perfume. Read the engaging essay now!
