Lecture: "Bottling the Zeitgeist: Classic Perfumes That Defined Their Eras, 1950 to 2000"

  • Chandelier Creative 611 BROADWAY, Suite 900 NEW YORK, NY 10012

From Think Olio:

In this Olio, we'll explore a half-century of perfumery through a selection of iconic feminine fragrances. Can a perfume encapsulate the postwar prosperity of the 1950s or the sexual revolution of the 1960s? Can a fragrance evoke the personality of a 1980s diva or a 1990s Generation X-er? You've probably heard that perfume should be applied to the pulse points, but can a scent also capture the figurative pulse of a decade? We’ll ponder these questions as we sample classic perfumes from 1950 to 2000 and learn what inspired them and how they "bottled" their cultural moments. Just like works of visual art, fashion, or architecture, perfumes sometimes have stories and styles that endure; breathe deeply and open your mind to their possibilities.

Open bar with wine and cocktails; $15.00 to reserve your seat.
