The new project from Cartier and Transsolar was inspired by the idea of elevation

Perfumer Mathilde Laurent of Maison Cartier has partnered with Munich-based Transsolar to open an olfactory installation piece in the form of a large glass cube filled with Cartier perfume.

The project, called “Unidentified Scented Object,” is set to be the first in a series. The perfume that fills the cube, which is situated at the top of a staircase that winds upward through an artificial cloud near the Seine in Paris, is an existing Cartier scent called L'Envol, not a new creation. Laurent and her team were inspired by the “scent of the sky” during the creation of the piece, also known as OSNI 1.
