The light teal color does a great job offsetting the graphic itself. I think that the strong use of color is unlike a lot of other graphics I have seen. I like how they used real products to create the infographic instead of drawing something. Although the names of the ingredients are in another language, it is still easy to tell what the ingredients are. It makes me wonder what the perfume will smell like when it all gets put together.

  1. 1. What’s the purpose of this image?
    2. What does this image do that a list of ingredients could not?
    3. Why did the author use those specific colors?
    4. Where might you find this image aside from the first source?
    5. What does this image teach you?

    How is perfume made?

    The bright colors draw our eyes to the image. The image is bright, which makes it attractive and visually appealing. This is an interesting way to talk about the ingredients in perfume, a substance that we often take at face value without thinking about all the parts used to make it. Because the labels are written in a different language, it might mislead some viewers, and it would obviously be easier to understand with English labels. Overall, however, the image is well-composed, organized in an interesting way based on the amount of ingredient in the perfume, and encourages the audience to look at and pay attention to the image (in a different way than a simple ingredient list would).

  2. Part 1:
    1. What type of perfume is this?
    2. Is this a form of advertisement?
    3. What does it smell like?
    4. Where are the ingredients from?
    5. Are the amounts of ingredients proportional?

    Part 2:
    The fresh scent and organic aroma makes you consider the components.

    Part 3:
    It makes us wonder what is in our perfume. It is aesthetically pleasing with the vibrant background and layers of colorful ingredients. It reminds us of a food pyramid–could you consume all of these items too? We might make an image like this on photoshop by cropping selections of images and formatting them similarly.

  3. 1. What are the components of perfume?
    2. What is the process of making perfume?
    3. Which component gives perfume its signature smell?
    4. What are the most common elements of perfume?
    5. Why should we know what’s in perfume?

    The olfactory sense is one of the most evocative triggers of memory.

    -This image made us consider the composition of perfume in a way we had not before
    -It makes us think about if the pyramid structure correlates to the percentages of the ingredients used
    -By picturing the ingredients, we get a better picture of the elements of perfume than you would from a list
    -The color scheme is visually appealing and the teal background pops out
    -The French labels adds complexity and speaks to the roots of perfume

  4. – What language are the labels in???
    – What does this smell like?
    – Is the scent really according to that proportion?
    – What make things smell good?
    – Why do the authors use real ingredients?

    – There are many scents we smell everyday, a wonderful scent can come from a strange object, but that is the wonder of nature.

    – We really liked the color of the little pyramid and it is always nice to see the real ingredients going into a perfume. And we wondered how can someone know how well these scents go well together.
