Japanese Cherry Blossom

They call it "The Little Black Dress of fragrance".
That's right folks...

Japanese Cherry Blossom, America's #1 fragrance since its humble beginnings in 2007, was my inspiration for this next piece in my BBW series of paper sculptures.

The fragrance--a soft blend of florals, asian pear, and cedarwood--has both sophisticated yet feminine qualities. As one of the first BBW fragrances to incorporate more nuanced, perfumey notes like cedarwood or musk, it broke away from the previous generation of simpler, fruit-centered fragrances that featured a strong single note. To avoid the realm of fruity-tooty, I wanted to create a woman who was both soft and sweet, yet elevated and refined at the same time.

What think'st thou?

And, just for fun, here's the silhouette. I love focusing on a strong silhouette to make the design work. Lots of detail, things sticking out here and there, shape language, etc.
Fun fun fun!
