Mnemosyne’s Scent: Scent Model and Fashion Piece


Some Behind-The-Scenes pictures:

 In attempt to texturise and give my bottle a gritty feeling

Had to carefully pick and carry a huge branch from Canteen 2 to ADM
Then have to modify the branch by cutting it down and also heat gunning it to twist and intertwine with our pole

Spray painted our SD and SO foil metal for a more clean, exquisite, androgynous vibe

Spray painted our pole with a stone texturising spray in make the pole in line with my bad scent of air freshener because this would replicate the road

Thank you for reading! Hope you enjoyed our piece.

Mnemosyne’s Scent: Research and Process Documentation


According to, Mnemosyne was the goddess of memory and the mother of artistic inspiration. For the ancient Greeks, memory was a fundamental gift. It was what differentiated man from animals. That’s why Mnemosyne was a very important goddess. She was so important to the Greeks that there were rivers and fountains with her name. However, despite her great importance, Mnemosyne does not have her own symbol, that is, she is not represented in a specific way like other goddesses are. This may be because she represents a very abstract concept that is very difficult to represent with concrete objects.

Examples of symbols of Greek Gods and Goddess


Mnemonic Devices are techniques or “tricks” for aiding memory by associating less meaningful material with more meaningful or memorable images, words or saying.

2 example methods:

  • First Letter Method also known as Acronym
    An acronym is a word formed from the first letters or groups of letters in a name or phrase.

My Very Excited Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies
(Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto)
Or without Pluto: My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles

  • Peg Method
    Useful way to remember numbered items in a listExample:
    So maybe let’s say you have a shopping list, and the second ingredient is lemon juice, you could  imagine a yellow dress shoe full of lemons, and you squishing your foot into the lemons to get the shoe on, turning the lemons into lemon juice.


Pleasant Scent
Abercrombie & Fitch Luxe Retreat Santiago Shores Mist Body Spray

  • Gift from my parents
  • The first scent I ever owned
  • Made me feel like an adult
  • Always went back to repurchase this particular scent
  • But recently found out A&F stopped producing this scent anymore

So, this last bottle just became even more precious

How I would describe this scent:
Musky, Slightly Floral- tinge of lavender

Unpleasant Scent
Febreze Car Freshener 

  • When I was younger, I had motion sickness
  • So, every time my parents drove, I would vomit
  • Hence, I have soon associated the smell of car freshener with the smell of vomit

Recycled plastic art -the use of recycled plastic to form crafted art works

Example of Artists:

1. Aurora Robson

Robson collects her own PET bottles or creates job opportunities for street people who collect bottles in shopping carts. She uses vibrant colours to give these materials new life.



2. Veronika Richterova

Czech artist Veronika Richterová created a series of sculptures made out of used water bottles. They often resemble real living plants/ animals. In my opinion, fantastic play on irony.
