What does cold smell like? What does it look like? And what about heat? Electricity? Softness? Visionaire, the fashion and art publication, explores the exciting world of scent. In collaboration with International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF), Visionaire develops an innovative roster of modern scents that have never before been conceived. Experience abstract scents mixed by the best “noses” in the perfume industry and visually interpreted by leading image-makers from the world of fashion and art.

The issue will consist of individual vials of exclusive scents that can be enjoyed over time, as well as full-color images, housed in a customized case. IFF works with 75 perfumers from around the world to create some of the most famous scents of our time: Yves Saint Laurent's Paris, Calvin Klein's Eternity, Clinique's Happy, Estée Lauder's Aromatics Elixir and Beautiful, Lancome's Tresor, Ralph Lauren's Polo Blue, Costume National and Odeur 53 by Comme des Garçons, to name a few.

From Visionaire: In 42 SCENT, Visionaire deconstructs the elements of scent, pairing twenty-one experimental perfumes — produced in collaboration with International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) — alongside twenty-one equally innovative images. Mario Sorrenti’s chilling photo of icebergs paired with the scent of cold by perfumer Vera Degen. David Bowie’s smell of success smelled vaguely rotten, symbolized in a Dan Forbes photo of sand slipping through Iman’s sinuous fingers. Karl Lagerfeld sought to capture hunger, to him the scent of bread baking at Paris’s legendary Poilâne Bakery, courtesy of perfumer Sandrine Malin. Lagerfeld photographed model Brad Kroenig in the nude with a baguette.
