Tracey Emin Serpentine Comme des Garcons


Serpentine Galleries has collaborated with the fashion house Comme des Garçons to develop a bespoke unisex fragrance, entitled SERPENTINE, based on our location in a historical parkland setting within a modern city. 

The result is a fresh, light, yet deceivingly complex, unisex scent composed of grass, leaves, pollen (galbanum, iris leaf), oxygene (aldehyde, ozone), asphalt (black musks, nutmeg), labdanum and smoked cedar with a little bit of pollution (benzoin, juniper wood, gaïac wood).

All proceeds from the sale of SERPENTINE directly support the Serpentine Galleries’ programmes.

'Emin joins an illustrious list of artists turning their hands to perfume as she designs bottles for a bespoke Comme des Garçons fragrance (...) Fresh, spicy and eminently wearable, this distinctive and delicious scent has been created to mark the opening of the Serp’s second Sackler Gallery last autumn and is the first in what both organisations hope will be an ongoing artist’s commission.'

- Louisa Buck, The Telegraph


'As for the bottle, “I did it from a completely artistic point of view,” Emin says of the design, her first fragrance-related project'
