Historical cradle and world-renowned for its know-how related to perfumery, Grasse honors today a meeting between Art and Perfume. Journey through the exhibition Respirer l’Art.
Originally known for its tanners experienced in perfumed leathers, Grasse has made perfume its specialty. Rich in the fragrant flowers of the region in which this city is located, it is quite natural that it has become over time the city of traditional perfumery registered on the list of intangible heritage of humanity with UNESCO.
Its unique know-how passed down from generation to generation has made it the world capital of perfumery, famous for the quality of its essences and its creations for the luxury perfume industry, among others.
But today, Grasse is making its olfactory skills available for the benefit of an exhibition: Respirer l’Art. Located in the Musée International de la Parfumerie, this exhibition showcases several works of art that appeal to several senses. Indeed, in addition to being visual, the contemporary works offer an olfactory journey telling the story of the perfumes and aromas that are hidden behind them. Here are four surprising works of the exhibition to discover.
