Art and Aroma…A New Tour Project

It’s spring, and just as the trees and flowers in my neighborhood are beginning to bud, I’m ready to mention a new project—or, more accurately, a project I originally intended to launch in spring of 2020.

I’ve created a new tour that blends fragrance history and art history, and I’ll be offering it for a small group at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (I have no affiliation there—this is an independent tour, approved and booked through the Met’s group tours office.) If you’d like find out more about this tour and maybe even purchase a ticket, please visit this listing on Eventbrite. If it goes well, I’ll plan to offer it again and follow it up with a second tour topic in the summer. Let me know what you think!
