If you're interested in fragrance or perfumery, please visit our friends downtown at the Institure for Art and Olfaction.
The Institute for Art and Olfaction advances public and artistic engagement with scent.
They do this by initiating and supporting arts projects that utilize the medium of scent, by providing accessible and affordable education in their experimental laboratory as well as in partnership with institutions and community groups, and by celebrating excellence in independent and artisan perfumery through their yearly award mechanism, The Art and Olfaction Awards. Through these efforts, they extend the world of scent beyond its traditional boundaries of appreciation and use.
If you're just getting started, you may wish to attend one of the IAO's open sessions, where you can begin experimenting creating perfume in a welcoming atmosphere.
