October 2016 (New York, NY) – Vietnam-born artist Phuong Dang celebrated the launch of her eponymous perfume line with a cocktail party held at the 620 Loft & Garden in New York on September 28th 2016. In conjunction with Pratt Institute and master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, the Phuong Dang perfumes range was presented to an esteemed crowd that included Barneys New York’s Jennifer Miles, Marc Rosen and dean Gerry Snyder of Pratt Institute, model/actress Carol Alt, former Town & Country editor in chief Pamela Fiori, The Musmanno Group founder Elizabeth Musmanno and Lyn Leigh of Perfumed Plume.
Guests sipped cocktails and enjoyed h’ors d’oeuvres while exploring each of the scents and absorbing scenes from “Liquid Emotion”, a film by visual artist Christy Lee Rogers and musical duo Beacon. The film was created as a lyrical expression of Phuong Dang’s intention with her perfume line.
The evening continued with a donation presented by Phuong Dang and CEO Spencer Kanis to Pratt Institute’s Gerry Snyder.
Comprised of ten perfumes and ten candles and created in collaboration with perfumers Bertrand Duchaufor and Marina Jung Allegret, the Phuong Dang range aims to convey “Liquid Emotion” though the power of fragrance. The range is available exclusively at Barneys New York and Barneys.com. Prices range from $140-$650.

PHUONG DANG Artist / Creator
Phuong Dang, a Vietnam-born artist, uses a common creative language to transform ideas into artistic realities across many different fields: from high fashion to design, to creative direction, to painting, and now to perfumery. Commencing her creative education and career in London as an international makeup artist for high-fashion houses, and as creative director for Elite Model Agency Worldwide, Phuong developed an acute, intuitive understanding of the world of artistic luxury and beauty, before turning her passion towards visual art. Since receiving her Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths University of London, Phuong’s highly tactile and visually spectacular sculptural paintings have been shown in many exhibitions around the world and are represented in numerous private, corporate and hotel collections. Her latest commission, a large painting for British Airways new lounge, will be revealed at JFK Airport in 2017.
As an extension and reflection of those creative journeys, Phuong has been privately creating scents with her own collections of oils for many years, before choosing to collaborate with some of the world’s best perfumers in creating her own perfume line. Through these outstanding scents, in her own words ‘Liquid Emotion’, she wishes to share their spirit, to touch and inspire others through the sense of smell, the most instinctive sense of all.
