Fragrance books and exhibitions-Oct 2009

Nathalie Pichard, Fragrance and Evaluation Consultant, captures the trends in fragrance and adds a little cultural twist to our blog. Inspiration seeds signed in collaboration with Nathalie, for this October 2009 focus.

« Quand le parfum portait remède » (When fragrances produced a cure) exhibition at St Antoine l’Abbaye (France). From June 14 till November 11, 2009. "Cloister gardens, Princes'gardens…when fragrances produced a cure" This exhibition proposes a new approach and presents the beginnings of the materia medica, when a fragrance was also a remedy. In two very different areas, this exhibition invites us, in a playful mode, to discover the Medieval scented waters, recreated in the XIXth century. A superb book written by odors specialist Annick Le Guerer, and olfactory illustrated by perfumes re-created by perfumers from Givaudan and IFF, D.Andrier & D.Ropion …is launched.
