Here is a demonstration of a new spirit at Longwood Gardens:
Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance – Opening April 10
Longwood Gardens presents its first major exhibition, Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance on view from April 10 through November 21, 2010. An intersection of flora, fashion and science, this exhibition will transform the Gardens’ gemlike Conservatory into a museum for the senses. Experience the actual plants and flowers behind iconic perfumes, explore the mysterious power of the sense of smell, discover the unique combination of creative artistry and intricate science behind perfume composition, and have the opportunity to compose a basic fragrance at the Make Your Own Fragrance stations located in the Music Room.
