Sceloporus, Perfume based on lizard pheromones in handblown perfume bottle, perfume, glass, metal, cloth
Sceloporus lizards, also known as Western Fence lizards, or blue-bellies, communicate with one another across time and space using pheromones secreted from their thighs, along with physical gestures. The perfume Sceloporus, inspired by fence lizard pheromoens, is a surprisingly fresh yet animalic perfume that blends with the wearer’s own skin chemistry to create a soft, sheer, more-than-human presence. It's primary scent notes, in keeping with scientific research, include pyrizines, also found in wine, citrus, coffee, and chocolate, as well as jasmonates, from flowers. Participants are invited to sample the perfume while tasting related scent compounds in white wine and grapefruit, coffee, and jasmine flavored chocolates.
