Artistic aromatic journey curated by New York Times perfume critic Chandler Burr on display in Dubai
Perfumery & Co. at The Dubai Mall has launched the Art of Scent Exhibition which aims to take visitors on an ‘aromatic journey’ where perfumes and their scents are presented as works of art befitting a place in The Louvre.
Running until July 12, The Art of Scent Exhibition is organised by Perfumery & Co and curated by former New York Times Perfume Critic, Chandler Burr, in collaboration with Art Emaar.
Exploring fragrances lent by international, regional and local brands, Burr has chosen 11 works of scent art from select collections in Perfumery & Co that are among the most refined and carefully curated in the world.

Comprising creations of significant contemporary artists, The Art of Scent Exhibition delves into the works of Thierry Wasser — the in-house perfumer of Guerlain, Christophe Laudamiel — president and master perfumer of DreamAir, New York, Patricia de Nicolaï — head of the Paris-based Parfums de Nicolai.
To extend the understanding of the scent medium in the Middle East, Burr has paired each work of scent art with a stylistically and technically similar work of visual art, chosen from Art Emaar’s extensive collection of contemporary works.
The exhibition is displayed in Fashion Avenue and is inspired by nature and the desert, inviting guests on an immersive olfactory journey to indulge in the art of scent.
The installation itself is an elegant work of art designed by Dubai-based studio LOCI architecture+design.
A journalist, author, and curator of olfactory art, Chandler forged and made famous the New York Times perfume critic's position, which he occupied from 2006 — 2010. In 2010, he left the Times to establish the world’s first department of scent art, at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
The Art of Scent in The Dubai Mall is his third original exhibit after highly acclaimed Art of Scent exhibitions in Barcelona and New York.
