    The Manifest Destiny Billboard Perfume, Tucson Version: Palo Santo "It's a shamanic herb that has strong associations with desert communities. People wear it for cleansing. It smells like a cross of mint and frankincense, with a hint of camphor." -Saskia Wilson Brown

The Manifest Destiny Billboard Perfume

The Manifest Destiny Billboard Perfume – The iterations will take their cue from each segment’s local flora, fauna, or cultural touchstones.

Working closely with Zoe Crosher and LAND, the IAO is composed an edition of scents for each stop along the way. Each iteration will be produced in a limited run of 20 bottles. Please see more here.

Purchase Manifest Destiny scents here

The Manifest Destiny perfume is a site-specific iterative edition of scents that adapts for each stop along the way while retaining the olfactory through line. The perfume formula is designed to evoke a hot road trip, and includes notes of sun dust, old car interiors, hot vinyl, electronics, leather, sweat, night blooming jasmine, tobacco, dried pine needles in the summer, foliage in a state of slight decay, and bourbon.

The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project is a series of artist-produced billboards and activations that will unfold along Interstate 10 Freeway from Florida to California through spring 2015. The project was conceived by artist Zoe Crosher and is co-curated by the artist and LAND ‘s Director and Curator, Shamim M. Momin. Please see more here
