Your nose will be in overdrive for this new exhibition at Somerset House. Perfume: A Sensory Journey Through Contemporary Scent( from 21 Jun;p .42) sniffs out the most significant scents over the past two decades. It also heads back a century to the pioneering Chypre de Coty (1917), said to be a benchmark for countless other 20th-century perfumes, and more contemporary labels such as CK One, which is seen as the first ‘shared fragrance’. Immerse yourself in these pivotal perfumes and get an insight into their creation and communication, and find out how self-taught perfumers are building their independent brands. Prepare, also, to be shocked by unsavoury aromas such as mould and sweat.
