There is nothing quite like the feeling of being elsewhere to bring the senses alive. It doesn't matter whether you're walking in a flower market in Cape Town or lost in your own city after a wrong turn—the act of removing ourselves from the routines that we do, see, hear, and smell every day makes our senses hyper-aware. And what do we do to capture these moments? The only thing we can: We photograph them. We try to steal these present moments in the hope that we can, in the future, relive something that will forever be past.
But there's another way of communicating the experience of a place: by capturing its olfactory essence. The June 2013 collection "Notes on a Journey" is a nod to the olfactory experience of being elsewhere.
