Fragrance supplier Seven Scent has collaborated with English symphony orchestra, the Hallé, in a performance for children which is being staged next month with a weather theme.
“Hallé in the Sun” combines music and fragrance to create a multi-sensory performance for school children from 7 to 11 years old. Formulated to enhance specific pieces of music ranging from classical to contemporary, Seven’s perfumers created scents to be presented on scratch and sniff cards; each fragrance is released by the audience as the musical program evolves.
• A heady mix of salt, brine and seaweed accompanies Britten's tempestuous "Storm."
• Orange blossom drifting on warm Spanish sunshine intermingles with "Carmen's Suite" by Bizet.
• Cool, crisp, pine trees are the backdrop for a sleigh ride through the forest during "Nightride and Sunrise" by Sibelius.
• A magical carpet of bluebells and woodland foliage unfolds in Stravinsky's "The Firebird."
Seven Scent also partnered with Hallé in October 2013 for a multi-sensory family concert.
