Personal adornment is closely related to the senses. In this class, we will explore the invisible world of fragrance: when you have visited North Africa or Southwest Asia, you will undoubtedly remember how the many scents made your nose tingle! Jewellery is specifically created to hold perfume, or is made of aromatic substances itself. Dress and body aesthetic also employ scent. This is not simply a form of beautification, but carried deep meaning. Fragrance kept evil at a distance, attracted blessings and was of great importance for the intimacies of married life. Enjoy this sensory journey into the smell of frankincense, spices and flowers, and discover the social and spiritual values of fragrance in everyday life.
