Matthew Miller is the winner of the Woolmark Prize 2017/18. The perfume has a distinct accord that references his design philosophy. “Art is fundamental to design” and is based upon a conceptual idea and the notes you would find in an Art gallery at his first exhibition. Rather than displaying the exhibition physically Matthew has chosen to turn it into a scent and allow it to be experienced by the nose.
