Aromatic Excursion w/ the Institute for Art & Olfaction

1450 Ocean - Camera Obscura building

1450 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, 90401

11:00am to 2:00pm

Tour selected Third Street Promenade stores with perfumer Saskia Wilson-Brown of the Institute for Art & Olfaction, clandestinely investigating the scents that identify major brands and aim to get us in a buying mood. It's a little bit subversive, a little bit eye-opening, and a whole lot of fun! Participants will learn about and discuss the architecture of persuasion, take scent notes and then rally at 1450 Ocean to do a group perfumery exercise. Take home a sample of your persuasive creation!
