Join MAD for a day filled with fun, laughter, and art at MAD’s Family Fun Day. Inspired by their exhibition, The Art of Scent, join MAD and the International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) Smell Lab in an engaging, interactive, hands-on education experience designed to illuminate on the science of olfaction, the complexity of scents, and the art of perfumery as you create your own personal fragrance.
The IFF Smell Lab: Create your own unique fragrance from scratch. Learn how to smell and to blend top, middle and bottom notes to create your own special fragrance. Perfume is a mixture of fragrant notes: the notes develop over time from the top to the middle to the bottom. The top notes form the first impression; middle notes are the heart of the perfume; bottom notes are the foundation. To create your personal scent, first smell and choose top, middle and bottom notes. Then spray and mix by layering the notes. Mix the ingredients. Name your personal scent. Voila! Enjoy!
Venue Description: Open Tues.-Sun., 11am-6pm (Thurs. & Fri. until 9pm). $15; $12, students/seniors. Pay what you wish Thurs., 6-9pm.
