Olfactory Nostalgia with Chandler McLellan
At In Fiore, we believe the skin is a sense organ and scent initiates healing. Olfactory Nostalgia is a look at medicinal triggers, scented memories, and the feelings that ensue when taking in a distinct ingredient.
Meet Chandler McLellan, Wyoming-based sculptor and trained carpenter and cabinet maker. Inspired by both elements of the past and future, Chandler has a degree in archeology, which fuels his abstract sculptures, while his home-town and the relative isolation drives escapism in his work.
“Perfume is also a key to the past and to our most vivid recollections.”
– Chandler McLellan
What & Where:
Sculpture artist, cabinet maker, and carpenter based in Laramie, Wyoming.
Myrrh is the smell of old wood and dust. It reminds me of digging through wood scraps and dreaming up new creations. It has layers like a complex wood grain and can evolve like a piece of art.
Perfumery as Medicine:
Everyday starts with a scent, whether its coffee, toasted bread, fresh air, or the sawdust cloud that follows me all day. It can help to reframe my experience of the world.
Perfume is also a key to the past and to our most vivid recollections. I often use fragrances consciously as a tool in which to remember a time, place, or feeling.
