A beautiful rainy day spent in the beloved city of cultural wonders and I discovered the @grandmuseeduparfum . A must see for anyone who considers themselves a true lover of fragrance and the epic history behind it. Another great invention from our side of the world and a testament to the ancient Egyptians . Le Grand Musée du Parfum is a world of sensory experience, emotion, and enjoyment, offering an original, educational, entertaining, and immersive experience to help visitors understand the world of perfume and unravel its many mysteries.
What was the first perfume known to mankind ?
How do master perfumers create fragrances ?
How are smell and emotions connected ?
How does the sense of smell work with olfactory memory ?
What raw materials are used in today’s fragrances ?
The cultural experience at the Museum was thus designed to be a living, evolutionary venture, generously peppered with olfactory discoveriesand sensory immersions. The objective is to experience the displays, as opposed to just looking at them, through smelling, feeling, touching, and testing.
Le Grand Musée du Parfum’s first collection is an olfactory ensemble of more than 70 scents. As an institution dedicated to the realm of scent, Le Grand Musée du Parfum displays this selection of smells and perfumes embody, express, and illustrate its broader educational message. Visitors are much more likely to absorb this message if the information is conveyed and internalized through individual experimentation and sensory immersion.
Through the odors offered to visitor noses, visitor minds will come to understand an era, specific neuroscientific facts, or the artistic dimension of the perfumer’s work with a raw material. Would love to see a museum like this in its rightful place in the Arab world 🙏🏾 #legrandmuseeduparfum #paris #somethingaboutparis #fragrance #frankincense #myrh
