Odorama // A vocabulary of fragrance

Why is it so hard to describe a smell in words? How can you find your own perfect personal perfume? In the upcoming Odorama we will investigate the Vocabulary of Fragrances with perfume expert Sofie Albrecht, PhD linguist Ilya Croijman and Odorama curator Caro Verbeek. Together we'll try to answer the question how experts are able to name and identify odours, and what makes them different from novices regarding olfactory language.

December 10: Odorama: A vocabulary of fragrance
Drinks and food from 18:00, talks at 20:00.
Tickets / Join us!
