It’s a brand new experience at Kingwood Center Gardens, one which combines the world of fragrance with the beauty of gardens and horticulture.
A feast for the eyes and nose, in other words.
It’s called “Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance,” and it will be on display between February 5 and April 30.
Blending flora, fashion and fragrance, this interactive exhibit offers a unique, innovative experience where you can discover the plants and flowers behind some the world’s most iconic perfumes. Showcasing some of Mother Nature’s most aromatic botanicals, Making Scents explores the artistry, history and science of fragrance utilizing STEAM teaching methods using hands-on demonstrations and engaging interpretation.
By integrating horticulture, history and pop culture, Making Scents is sure to enlighten the senses and engage the minds of visitors about fragrance and the living world in a fun, dynamic way.
This exhibit was produced by The North Carolina Arboretum with support from the International Perfume Bottle Association.
The exhibit is free with admission to Kingwood and is housed in the Carriage House.
