Details

In this final, harrowing episode of MALA, we meet Claude, who spent 25 years in prison for a crime she did not commit. Claude's dresser is covered in about thirty perfumes, and she wears a different perfume for the time of day, her mood at that moment. There are designer and celebrity perfumes, like Perry Ellis to Katy Perry. Scents lock themselves into our memory, and perfume is a chance for ascension of our social class, our material circumstances. After being denied perfume for decades of her life, Claude inundates every new experience with a fragrance.
