The Scent of Memories

Almost all of our bespoke typographic designs centre around capturing memories - a wedding keepsake for the happy couple, precious new babies, favourite family times throughout the years, the lyrics from that 'first dance' song...

When a couple came to us recently and asked if we could commission an acrylic design to capture the scents that reminded them of their special moments together, we couldn't wait to get started.

Scents, after all, are suggested by scientific research to be the strongest memory trigger of all. Whether it be the sharp smell of freshly mown grass reminding you of the sunny days you spent climbing trees as a child...or, like me, catching a whiff of the perfume or aftershave you wore on your wedding day and suddenly reliving those moments again (I keep mine only for special occasions and whenever I wear it memories of our special day come flooding back).

This commissioned design was inspired by the couple's absolute favourite smells, using their chosen words to create two iconic bottles.

The design was printed onto our 8mm diamond-polished acrylic, supplied with four aluminium spacers. We print onto heavyweight professional photograph paper, using archival inks, and then apply a heat seal to the rear. Produced to Fine Art standards.

Another example of the broad range of totally unique typographic designs that More Than Words can offer.
