A Sense of Dinesen
How do you record and collect the smell of a tree?
Together with Sissel Tolaas, artist and researcher, we journeyed from Schwarzwald – or the Black Forest – in Germany to Dinesen's main production site in Jels, Southern Denmark. Equipped with extraordinary recording gear and an inquiring mind – and nose – smells from the majestic Douglas trees were collected.
DD–1 is the name of an archive that consists of recorded molecules from where we can explore a wide variety of Dinesen Douglas smells. The archive results from Sissel Tolaas’ meticulous recordings that have been converted to molecules in her lab in Berlin.
DD–2 is the name of a Dinesen Douglas scent – Developed from the DD–1 archive, we have isolated specific molecules we found interesting to create an essence of Dinesen Douglas.
With DD–2 we invite you to take home the calming scent of Douglas and let it soothe your senses while rediscovering its magnificence through a different, invisible sense.
