A visit to a Perfume Museum in Grasse

Dear Shaded Viewers,

 My friends Brooke Taylor and Nana Aganovich, took a brief trip to the South of France for a holiday and ended up spending most of their time researching perfumes in Grasse.  They discovered an incredible bottle archive at the perfume museum which included a collection from the golden age of the early 20th century. Schiaparelli's are the highlights from the curious offering from Weimar Germany of a reclining woman .

There is an incredible room, a video chamber, where you lie on the floor on beanbags watching a film of a forest while the corresponding odours are pumped into the room.
