About Smelly Projects

Smelly Projects is the visual olfactory art practice of artist and illustrator, Michelle von Mandel. Born out of a fascination with the sense of smell and its relationship to memory and the other senses, Smelly Projects explores themes of travel, and nostalgia through a series of limited edition art candles and fine art prints.

Notes of lipstick and velvet flirt shamelessly with cashmeran, amber and tobacco. Seductive, rich, and subtly floral, with just a hint of dirt and lowered inhibitions, this candle captures the glamour of New York City nightlife as well as a bit of the grittiness that lies just beneath the surface.


Pairs well with a dirty martini and Louboutins.


Amp up the party vibes with the NYC Nightlife Playlist.


Notes: Violet, Orris, Cashmeran, Amber, Tobacco, Velvet, Dark Woods


190g soy wax candle hand poured in the UK, 100% organic cotton label
