One year after the multi-sensory fragrance exhibition ‘Sensorium’, New York City hosts another fragrance event. The Museum of Arts and Design presents an exhibition called ‘The Art of Scent’. 
 
From November 20 to February 24, 2013, discover or rediscover some of the fragrances that enhanced the perfume industry from 1889 to 2012. 
 
The exhibition highlights 12 fragrances. You can smell for instance Jicky, created by Guerlain in 1889, Osmanthe Yunnan created by Jean Claude Ellena for Hermès in 2006 or Untitled by Daniela Andrier for Maison Martin Margiela in 2010.
 
The fragrances have been selected by Chandler Burr, the curator of the museum’s fragrance department. Chandler Burr is also a journalist and wrote several books about perfume.
