Matsu Musk

| /

matsutake musk is a speculative scent created in response to growing symbiotic processes between fungi and humans.

notes: mushroom gills, skin

year 2077: humans have begun incorporating mycelium into their routines, diets, architectural structures, and medicinal systems in exponential ways. the increasingly abundant quantity of fungi in human bodies begins to create a communal bodily emanation uncannily similar to mushrooms. in the warm crevice of an armpit, you find a fruiting body.

30 ml / 1 oz

* matsutake musk comes packaged in sustainable mycelium packaging.




agar olfactory is a project in speculative olfaction by augustine zegers. it imagines climate disaster and apocalyptic scenarios and the type of smell landscapes that would exist in such events. it collapses timespace any activating embodied intensities and inviting us to adjust our palettes as we peer into the future. 

as a project, it acknowledges the layered (and currently unfolding) apocalypses of our time, including, but not limited to: the sixth mass extinction event, the colonial apocalypse of 1492, and the covid-19 pandemic.

the project offers wearable olfactory works to invite sustained engagement with quantum queer time and to allow somatic alignment with future ecological states and eras.
