NY Museum Stages First ‘Scent’ Exhibit
Chandler Burr calls his works ‘olfactory art,’ and says he’s not a freak—he just uses his nose more often and more carefully than the rest of us. Blake Gopnik reports.
What a fantastic idea! The very thought stirs my scent loving soul… I wish I was closer so I could attend. Although if I were making real wishes I would wish to share a bottle of red wine with Chandler Burr and talk scent for an afternoon.
I personally disagree with his idea that “a thing must be artificial; it is impossible to create art entirely with nature”—but I understand the point he is making.
I love all kinds of fragrance; traditional as well as all natural.
There is room in my world and my shop for both!

For me this fall I am continuing my love affair with Cinnamon.
