Bespoke oil perfume blends and matching poetry in this installation from Rebecca Sharp

Rebecca Sharp has created a site-specific installation for StAnza 2016 within the St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum. As part of her new venture working with poetry and essential oils, and developing the concept of a holistic creative practice, Rebecca has created a series of bespoke essential oil perfume blends, with corresponding new poems. Housed in the Old Chemist’s Shop within the Museum, the series references the natural ingredients and methods used in making the work, and the creative processes at play. Read the poems and sample the blends – a truly interactive, multi-sensory poetic experience.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with St Andrews Preservation Trust.
