This project had it's genesis in the
late Seventies. I had created a laser transmission hologram of the famous Red
Hot candies that integrated the use of cinnamon oil for a realistic smelling
Late in 1999 we were contacted by the
fascinating 110 year old company Firminisch. Their business is scents and
fragrance. The project required a floating 3-D hologram image of a perfume
bottle that actually carried the fragrance of the perfume! During a
pre-production conversation, I mentioned the world's first "smelling"
hologram, Laser Red Hots, which I had created 20 years before. After a brief
mental coin toss we mutually agreed to re-master the original concept in a white
light viewable edition, since the concept they intended to convey could be done
with the candies or a perfume bottle.
Their presentation was a rousing success
as evidenced in the brief note we were sent (shown below).
