LUSH is bringing its brand new Volume IV Gorilla perfume exhibit to Vancouver this week.
But we’re not talking about just any regular installation.
From September 26 to 30, you can visit the Gorilla Gallery at 536 Seymour Street to experience each new fragrance in its very own interactive installation.
You’ll be able to go along to the event to immerse yourself in the scents and the stories that inspired them. All of the Volume IV perfumes have been influenced by exceptional stories which you’ll see at the gallery – accompanied by featured films and photography.
The best part? It’s totally free to attend.
Entering the Gorilla Gallery means you can experience what it feels like to be on the Road From Damascus, let yourself go in the Self Esteem Machine, and make yourself comfortable in a converted water tank that was inspired by the extraordinary story of Tachowa Covington – a homeless man from L.A. The abandoned tank he turned into a home was subsequently tagged by Banksy and turned into a commodity overnight.
The Gorilla Gallery will also be popping up in Chicago and Dallas. It’s the brainchild of head perfumer Simon Constantine and Dallas photographer/filmmaker, Hal Samples. Through their collaboration, the latest Gorilla collection has explored themes such as homelessness, refugees, identity, and mental health, which have been thoughtfully transformed into scent.
During the Vancouver installation, you’ll get to see Samples of Society – a series of documentaries that have been made by Hal to document his life-changing experiences with homelessness. There will also be live music events, exclusive perfumes and products available for sale at the Gorilla Gallery. These include; Tank Battle and Blackcurrant Angel which have never before been on sale.
Secret Garden, Sweet Grandma, Road From Damascus, Iamesh and Self Esteem Machine, along with the exclusive Amelie Mae FUN, will also be available to buy. Gorilla perfumers – Mark and Simon Constantine, take inspiration from their travels and create revolutionary fine fragrances to illustrate stories of the places they’ve visited and the people they’ve met. Now you can experience the results for yourself in Vancouver this week.
