Penning Perfumes

Today I've been working on my contribution to the latest Penning Perfumes project: a splendid idea pioneered by Odette Toilette and Claire Trévien to combine two art forms.  Poets are given perfumes from which to take inspiration and Perfumers are given poems.

The poem I'm responding to is by Claire Trévien herself and I've spent some time today in correspondence with her to better understand the work I'm responding to.  It's called Listening to Charles Ives, which is enough to tell you that the poem takes some of it's inspiration from music - so my perfume will be a third generation derivation of art in a third different medium: I hope I can live up to the earlier works!
