if you didn’t get the chance to go to NYC for the great scent exhibition The Art of Scent 1889 – 2012, held at New York Museum of Arts and Design between November 2012 and February 2013 – you have now the opportunity to see the next version in Madrid, Spain.
The Art of Scent at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid presents 8 fragrances until the 4th February 2015. Each scent is presented as a unique piece of art, rooted in its respective cultural history and described in art – historical terms.
Obviously the art exhibition presented a huge challenge for the designer Cano Estudio, who had to showcase the scents in isolation, without decoration, containers or packaging. The solution is a series of “bubbles” around the room, each of which contains a different scent and allows the visitor to experience this.
