Scents Apparatus installation / Het Parfum

Located in the PlantRoom

Cleaning the vases/maintaining scents
Be careful when you take out the vases, the installation can be very wobbly.

  1. Discard the cat litter that’s inside the vases (the little stones you can see on the bottom of the vase).
  2. Rinse the inside of the vases with water, just make sure it doesn’t leave too many marks once it dries.
  3. Add new cat litter.
  4. Re-add the right scent to the right vase (see pictures below and additional scent list for corresponding vase to scent).
    To find the right dosage just try a few drops at first, smell and add more until the scent is strong enough.
  5. Clean the outside of the vases by using a tiny bit of window cleaner to get dirty finger prints off the surface.
  6. Discard the coffee beans and add new ones.

Ampoules / Perfume presentation flasks

In 2018 there was the idea of giving / presenting the perfumes to the Mayor of Amsterdam. For this we had bottles made by Pochpac. They are in a box in the office packed in bubble wrap with the name Het Parfum - ampoules - seal equipment. They are all differ in shape. The idea was to seal every bottle with a different colour wax. This machine plus wax sticks are also stored in this box.
