PARIS — “Quand Le Parfum Portait Remède” (“When Perfume Cured”) is the name and subject of a polysensorial exhibition at the Musée de Saint-Antoine L’Abbaye and a book penned by Annick Le Guérer.
For the exhibit, which is on in Saint Antoine l’Abbaye, France, Givaudan perfumer Daniela Andrier and International Flavors & Fragrance’s Dominique Ropion recreated 14 plant-based fragrances with purported health benefits from recipes dating from the Middle Ages through to the 18th century. The exhibit, for which Le Guérer oversaw scientific elements, runs from March to November yearly through November 2011.
