About the Institute for Art and Olfaction

One of the IAO goals is to provide an accessible and affordable education in their laboratory for the people who have traditionally not had access. They also support the art and perfume communities by advancing experimental practices through ongoing creative residency programs, community-minded events (Experimental Scent Summit, A.I.X. Scent Fair), and through the Art and Olfaction Awards.
