L'Oeil du Vert's founder and fragrance designer Haley Alexander van Oosten has created an oil-based custom botanical fragrance, "On Wings of Iris for LACMA." It pairs essences of ethereal blue lotus and green frankincense with transcendent essence of orris. An exquisite glass rollette bottle contains this fragrance, designed for the Wear LACMA: 50th Anniversary Edition.
L’Oeil du Vert is a Los Angeles-based artisanal fragrance house. Through the distillation, design, and composition of trees, flowers, plants, minerals, and their essences, L’Oeil du Vert seeks to facilitate transformational experiences through artful contact with nature.
This fragrance was inspired by Helen Lundeberg’s surreal 1937 painting Microcosm and Macrocosm and a silver feather from ancient Egypt, both in LACMA's permanent collection. The fragrance is imagined to be a perfumed message from the Greek goddess Iris, whispering of our deep connection to the vast cosmos.
Wear LACMA: 50th Anniversary Edition: Wear LACMA is an art and fashion project featuring limited-edition pieces created by some of Los Angeles’s top designers and inspired by the museum’s permanent collection and exhibitions. These one-of-a-kind fashion items will be sold at the LACMA stores and through Farfetch.com with all proceeds benefiting the museum. This project was created by LACMA’s Director’s Circle.
