Perfume Spyros Drosopoulos (GR) 20 Aug 2018

Splash!

The Scent of Outdoor Sports and Leisure

Splash! is the scent of people gathering together in an outdoors setting. It's a happy festive scent where one can feel the excitement. We smell water and grass and fresh air in the beginning. As more people gather and the festivities begin the smell of prosecco mixed with suntan and sweat starts filing the air.

Het Parfum

The perfume Splash! is developed by Spyros Drosopoulos for Mediamatic’s sensuous game around city planning; Het Parfum. This interactive, social game explores the future of a much-debated area in Amsterdam’s city centre: the Navy Terrain. Thus with five different perfumers, five tailor-made fragrances give expression to various prospective visions of the city; one of which being outdoors and leisure.

Why Outdoors and Leisure?

The overall mission of the Navy Terrain is to transform it from being an off-limits military terrain, to an accessible public place of research, recreation, and housing. Thus, a future of outdoors and leisure is one of the plans that can bring this vision forward.

About Spyros Drosopolous

In 2013 Spyros Drosopoulos developed his niche perfume line Baruti. His perfumes are often inspired by music, art, and nature. For example, for the Rijksmuseum he has carefully recreated Vemeer’s painting ‘Melksmeisje’ into a perfume that captures not just the environment of the painting but also the scent of the girl herself. He strives to push the boundaries of conventional perfumery without any limitations on creativity.

Het Parfum is a collaboration between Mediamatic, The Institute for Art and Olfaction, Play the City, and the five perfumers: Spyros Drosopoulos, Maki Ueda, Ricardo Moya, Niklaus Mettler, and Alessandro Gualtieri. Het Parfum is part of Uitmarkt 2018 that is held around the Oosterdok area which involves the Navy Terrain.
