Harrods’ Fragrance Garden is to be exhibited at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show in May 2015. The luxury department store teamed up with award-winning garden designer Sheena Seeks to create Harrods’ first ever concept garden. ‘The Fragrance Garden will be a celebration of perfume and scent through the medium of flowers.
Taking the art of perfume-making as its theme, the concept garden will reflect the cross-fertilisation of nature and science, as well as traditional floral perfumes. Inspired by the 19th Century artisan tradition of enfleurage, a technique whereby the scent of flowers is captured in wax, on one side of the garden flowers will appear enclosed in oversized laboratory beakers and test tubes, while on the adjacent side they reappear, transformed into giant paper blooms.
Incorporating digital innovation, the garden will also feature augmented reality images on giant screens, which will leap into life when viewed through a phone or tablet.
