BRAZIL: Espaço Perfume—Art & History, a museum dedicated to the art of perfumery in Brazil, opened in Curitiba. Designed by architect Éstudio Votupoca, the project was sponsored by O Boticário, Givaudan and Saint Gobain and supported by Nippon Kodo, OpusMúltipla, Swarovski and Posigraf, among others. The museum has a collection of millenary pieces, Eau de Cologne Royale, Napoleon Bonaparte’s Cologne Water, a 1200 B.C. Phoenician glass bottle and the first temporary exhibit of 10 bottles from the 18th century from Givaudan. Interactive exhibition themes include “Perfume in the ancient times—from 3000 B.C. to 1900 A.D.,” “Perfume and fashion in the 20th century,” “Art of perfumery” and “Perfumery raw materials.” Also, a section will highlight Brazil’s perfume history and culture. A multisensorial cinema, located on the second floor, shows a movie synchronized with scents created by Givaudan.
Phones are monitored in five languages (Portuguese, English, French, German and Spanish). For more information, call the museum at (011) 55-41-2101-9120.
