Orange Rim Cleaner
1 oz Cologne Spray
Limited Edition - *** ONLY 3 LEFT ***
only 22 pieces available thru, each signed and numbered by the artist

In 2009 Irish artist Alan Phelan contacted Demeter about creating a fragrance for an upcoming retrospective at the Irish Museum of Modern. Alan wanted to re-create the smell of an orange scented wheel de-greaser that was used by modified car enthusiasts at an event he had organized a few years prior. The smell of this cleaner was his strongest memory of the day, where modified car owners cleaned their parked cars all day prior to judging in a "Shine and Show" competition.

Rather than show photographs or make some kind of 'boy racer' artwork, the memory trigger through fragrance was how Phelan wanted to represent the idea. As an art piece the scent grapples with the o-object, as ultimate dematerialized artwork, an unobtainable object of desire, a smell. And thus, an amazing partnership with Demeter was forged, as the opportunity to merge the perfumer's art into the visual and spatial art of Alan Phelan was irresistible. Demeter was uniquely suited for this project because no other fragrance house works the relationship between scent and memory so intimately.

The project is connected to a multiple venue exhibition called "Fragile Absolutes" which worked through a range of different themes and productions methods. The limited edition cologne is being issued in the 2012 show at Limerick City Gallery of Art, with 100 signed bottles, available only at the show itself, or at

Highly impressed
by Bazil the hang gliding instructor from El Paso, TX on 9/4/2013
This perfume is exactly what I had been looking for! I can use it all the time, and on special occasions such as going to the mechanic and to car races. It is so unique and, I have been complimented while wearing this several times. My friends are always shocked to hear the scent of this perfume. I was delighted with this scent, as I am unable to spend much time around cars due to my duties as a hang gliding teacher. This perfume is perfect to make up for my lack of experience with cars. However, I do not like that this perfume often attracts rowdy 11-year-old boys. Overall, I highly recommend this perfume!
Overall: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
