Cultivate and educate your senses in this “show-and-smell” session held at the Brooklyn Museum. We’ll make five stops in the galleries, sniffing specific fragrance notes and learning about overlapping moments in perfume history and art history.

Whether you want to brush up (pun intended) on Impressionism or find out what kind of fragrance a Renaissance noblewoman would have worn, this multi-sensory class will give your eyes and nose something to enjoy.


Attendance for this class is limited to 15. Details about exact meeting location at the Brooklyn Museum will be emailed to registrants.
