We know, we know... LA doesn't have the best reputation. The smog, the traffic, the flaky people. We've heard it all, and we beg to differ. Join us to rediscover this thriving city, through its exciting independent perfume community.
From the Biennial Scent Fair to hands-on workshops, the glitzy Art and Olfaction Awards to the familial Experimental Scent Summit, our Scent Week programming will be diverse, exciting, and invigorating.
People will be visiting from (at last count) 17 countries to participate in our programs and events. Our impact is global, and we're committed to using the arts as a tool for international dialogue.
Los Angeles is occasionally beautiful, sometimes ugly, raucous, sophisticated, multilingual, diverse, stressful, relaxed, but almost always warm-hearted. It's also the home of a growing and thriving creative scene, and who doesn't love a sunny day?
These are some of the reasons the Institute for Art and Olfaction decided to produce our first Scent Week in our home town.
With nine full days of communal activities, with perfumers and fans of scent flying in from all over the world to attend our programs, and with a whole city to explore, we surely need all the help we can get.
Join us, and let's make something wonderful together.
