There is a rather sweet smell coming from the Somerset House major summer exhibition this year. If you fancy a sniff then make time to visit their new exhibition Perfume: A Sensory Journey Through Contemporary Scent’, that will run between 21 June and 17 September. You will find it in the East Wing Galleries (walk around the fountains, towards the river, and turn left – I find the signs there confusing at times!).

The exhibition will display unique, exciting scents in playful, interactive settings. There will even be a fully functioning, interactive perfume laboratory.

In connection with Somerset House’s Perfume exhibition, participants will investigate their senses in a workshop exploring language, self-expression and smell. Join the Fragrance Foundation and Marty, a cartoon character, and his famously mighty nose for an afternoon exploring the link between our senses and the ways we can describe them.
