London 1920s Perfume Event this Tuesday : Scratch and Sniff
We have plenty of exhibitions for our eyes, restaurants for our tastebuds, and music for our ears, but our sense of smell has been rather neglected by cultural offerings, until now. Following its pilot in February, covered then by Basenotes, Scratch+Sniff, "Purveyors of Olfactory Adventures", are introducing a new kind of event which places scent and the nose at its heart.
Vamps. Surrealists. Narcotics. America. Money. And a large dose of seediness on the side. We’re going to take a trip back to the 1920s, reliving the social and cultural history of the time through the stories told by perfume. We’ll stop in at a Stateside speak-easy, will pop by at an Aviation show, and will take a seat in the society drawing room of a Noël Coward play where the characters would dip their cigarettes in the legendary Narcisse Noir perfume. We’ll also look at how the technological revolution and the development of new chemicals brought along a plethora of smells never experienced before and the opportunity for fragrance to be seriously subversive….
We are in trusted hands, as our guide for the evening is Lucy Moore, historian and author of Anything Goes, a biography of the 1920s:
