DEVELOP A NOSE FOR STORYTELLING : A WRITING WORKSHOP BY MICHAEL BURNS
Apart from creating intriguing fragrances, Bombay Perfumery truly believes in participating in and fostering the burgeoning creative community. Perfume and, by extension, the sense of smell creates a fantastic platform to develop stories from.
We tied up with Michael Burns, founder of Tall Tales, to develop a unique workshop at the G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture where one’s nose literally leads one to the story.
Crafted as a hands-on writing workshop, Michael first introduced our participants to the different senses. Moving on to introducing our fragrances, he encouraged them to engage with the fragrances and jot down words and memories that they associated with our 8 perfumes.
Using those memories and descriptions, the participants came up with a distinctive character and environment, creating the perfect background to develop a story.
