Since 2012, the Institute for Art & Olfaction has supported the intrigue of scent as a creative pursuit, compiling research and inviting artists, collaborators and the public to get in on the indie, avant-garde tip of the perfume world. This weekend artist and perfumer Ashley Eden Kessler and IAO founder Saskia Wilson-Brown join forces in an immersive all-day session designed for those who are more than just scent-curious, but actively seeking ways to incorporate scent into their creative practices, and maybe even grow it into a proper business. Business + Practice: Perfumery Intensive will cover the industry basics, answer your practical questions and trigger your flights of inspiration.
Institute for Art & Olfaction, 932 Chung King Road, Chinatown; Sat., Dec. 28, 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; $165. artandolfaction.com.
