“Diffusing Molecules #3″, preparation work

Scent design for the traditional Christmas Market at Schloß Schönbrunn, Vienna – Winter 2013. [Client: MTS Marketing Tourismus Synergie Wien GmbH]

In cooperation with Elke Kies from MagicBox we composed subtile resinous fir tree notes and exclusive orange and herbal blends. And provided the client with three custom-built scent beaming units in order to create extraordinary olfactory experiences for the visitors of the market.
Imagine: a romantic winter night, a slight breeze, and a smelly smell. All organic. – Just a senusal surplus. No manipulation intended.

Duftinstallation, Jüdisches Museum Hohenems

Jerusalem – Mahane Jehuda Market

Garden of the Jewish Museum, Hohenems
(In cooperation with the On-Site Art Festival)

With his smellscape Paul Divjak is stepping into an olfactory dialogue with the current exhibition at the Jewish Museum: „A Streetcar Named Desired“, which takes the visitors on a reflective journey through Jerusalem by following the route of tram number 1, crossing and connecting the various „Jerusalems“.
In „L´année dernière à Jersualem“ the artist is describing a stroll through the city of Jerusalem. Subjective memories concerning the sense of smell enfold a assiciative and symbolic bouquet of the Holy city, center of three religions. Such evoking the aura of the very place of different cultures.

Geruchsanalyse @rienna#2

Geruchsanalyse: Paul Divjak & Alexander Ehrmann

Geruchsanalyse: IfeO @rienna, Vienna

15.11.2018 // rienna#2 – contemporary design shop a-1050 wien

Der Duftexperte Paul Divjak energetisiert das rienna #2 mit einer Point-of-Sale-Duftinstallation seiner Komposition „Soul Splash”, liest vitalisiert aus seinem Buch „Der Geruch der Welt“ (Edition Atelier) und analysiert mit dem Apotheker Alexander Ehrmann deinen ganz persönlichen Geruchstyp. (Persönliche Körpergeruchszertifikate werden ausgestellt.)

Da es sich bei der performativen Geruchsbildbestimmung des von Dr. Divjak und Mag. Ehrmann gegründeten IFeO (Institut für Experimentelle Olfaktorik) um einen sensiblen und sehr intimen Prozess handelt, wird darauf hingewiesen, dass für die Teilnahme an der Analyse die Unterzeichnung d/einer persönlichen Einverständniserklärung erforderlich ist.
