Mandy Aftel, Founder of Aftelier Perfumes

Perfumer and author Mandy Aftel’s Archive of Curious Scents shares the glorious history of natural aromatics — part of the extraordinary lineage of scent that reaches back to the beginnings of human culture and is entwined with the earliest history of medicine, cuisine, sexuality, adornment, and worship. She will walk you through some of the exhibits, show you a 400-year-old book of secrets, tell you where ambergris really comes from, and share several examples of scents that have been used in people’s daily lives in almost every culture for centuries, and are in danger of disappearing.
