Visionaire releases its 66th issue, Ritual, with two sets of sculptures in the form of sculptural scented candles created by six world-renowned artists.

Each is published in an edition of 200 copies. The first set featured Maurzio Cattelan, Barbara Kruger and Bruce Weber; the second features David Adjaye, Demna Gvasalia and Scarlett Johansson by Rupert Sanders.

World-famous architect David Adjaye saw his candle as an opportunity to explore the evolution of a geometry over time, exploiting the ephemerality of form that contrasts with the perceived permanence of architecture. Evocative of a four-tiered architectural façade, the candle embraces mutability and calls attention to the strange and often beautiful complexity that emerges as the idealized shape devolves. The candle smells of wet stone, created by IFF.

Demna Gvasalia, founder of Vetements and creative director of Balenciaga, transforms the banality of a tubesock into a sculptural edifice that smells like fresh laundry, with scent concocted by IFF.

Film director Rupert Sanders embraces the latest in 3D-capture technology to portray Scarlett Johansson in two parts: human exterior and robotic interior, replete with facial features and mechanic musculature. IFF created the scents of electricity, smoke and chaos. The three perfumers are part of International Flavors & Fragrances Inc., a leading innovator in sensorial experiences. The candles were produced by AU in Brooklyn, founded by Andrej Urem. AU uses locally sourced raw materials, sustainable packaging and ethical production practices.
