About the MALA PODCAST
MALA : A GARLAND OF FLOWERS, A BAD WOMAN, MEMORY AS LIVING ART
These multiple meanings were a point of departure for this podcast & perfume anthology. As a writer & perfumer, I wanted to explore memory & olfaction & redefine what it means to be a “bad woman.”
The women interviewed for this project spent decades in the criminal justice system in New York State. We wanted to render their lives, before & after their convictions, as perfumes. Each fragrance is a composition of the scent memories amassed throughout their lifetime. These are notes from their childhood, of solace, of yearning, of trauma & escape.
The act of releasing a scent from a vessel into the air is akin to their newfound freedom, to a life now outside. We welcome you to experience their stories.
In love & solidarity,
