Illuminum and AnOtherMag.com host a salon discussion with Chandler Burr on the topic of
‘Scent as an Art Medium’
Illuminum fine fragrances – inspired by the quintessence of Mother Nature and using premium and rare ingredients – consider perfumery as art.
In November, as part of a season of installations and exhibitions on Perfume as Art, the Illuminum Fragrance Lounge on Dover Street hosts a unique salon discussion with former New York Times scent critic Chandler Burr on the subject of ‘Scent as an Art Medium’.
Chandler Burr is an American journalist, author and museum curator. Since December 2010 he has curated olfactory art at The Museum of Arts and Design in New York City and curated the exhibition The Art of Scent 1889-2012.
He is author of The Perfect Scent, based on his The New Yorker Magazine piece, parallel stories of a year he spent behind the scenes at Hermès and Coty. He also penned The Emperor of Scent, the story of a biophysicist and perfume genius who proposes an extraordinary theory of the mechanism that produces our sense of smell.
Burr will appear in conversation with AnOthermag.com Editor and fragrance writer Laura Bradley.
