Get your bullshit detectors and brilliance radars at the ready we are going to uncover the truth and lies embedded in the concepts of fragrance, performance and everyday life! The Candy Perfume Boy returns to the loft as part of the Instability-in-Stability project where he and Cara will decipher just what performance and perfume can evoke in us, questioning how influenced our opinions of the these illustrious industries are by what we read in press releases, project blurbs and reviews.
A massive thank you to everyone who viewed the special fragrant event for the Instability-in-Stability Loft Project. We had a great discussion about scent memory and it was excellent to have such a fantastic interaction from our viewers.

Apologies for taking so long to get the videos on here but I’ve had some problems with LiveStream and embedding.
