Smell – Workshop by Laurent-David Garnier

October 2018

Laurent-David Garnier, senior perfumer, artist and chemist gave a two-days workshop and lecture at the department about smell. We explored the characteristics of smell, the sensation of smelling, learned about the composition of molecules that create exciting, horrible, addictive and beautiful fragrances. Through LD Garnier’s wonderful explanations and huge knowledge that spans from the chemical, artistic to ecological and political issues of olfaction we had smelling sessions where we tried to describe the smell in words, associations, descriptions. Students were asked to bring smells with them (in form of objects, liquids etc.) which they analysed and transformed through a week’s time into something new, disconnected to its past.
