A donation of fifty percent of your portrait fee of $2,500 will be pledged to the La Jolla Athenaeum for future funding of their exhibitions, performances, lectures and educational projects.

A fully refundable deposit of $250 is required to reserve your first sitting. Sittings will be scheduled to accommodate you and the artist. 

AvantNez is a personalized olfactory portrait – an aroma that captures and illuminates those indescribable elements of your unique personality.

Brian Goeltzenleuchter’s AvantNez is a central component in his exploration of the role of commerce and the arts. Every commission benefits an educational or cultural institution such as museums, libraries, and visual and performance art organizations.

Personal fragrance provides you with an alternative to mass produced retail perfumes and colognes. The customized scent is yours alone. Not only will it define your individual space, but it has the potential to affect the way those around you interact with you.

Sitting begin on June 20th. Your advance reservation to participate locally in this international project will assure direct benefit the La Jolla Athenaeum.

The charge of the portrait includes three sittings with the artist, seventy milliliters of scent, and an original sculpture which contains your fragrance. Your personal “recipe” will not be shared nor offered to any other patron. You may reorder your personal scent for $275 per seventy milliliters.
