Unravel the mysteries of perfume in the Botanic Gardens, and explore some of the most fragrant plants and flowers in the Garden
Spend a unique and memorable Saturday afternoon in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney unravelling the mysteries of perfume while exploring the most fragrant plants found in the Garden.
Join perfume consultant Catherine du Peloux Menage, who will discuss the sense of smell, the science of scent, the history of perfume, and the creation of some of the most famous perfumes ever produced. Catherine has developed a practice as a scent stylist, speaker, and writer on perfume and the sense of smell, speaking on everything from the history of perfume to historical scents and stinks in the works of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens.
The talk will be complemented by a walk through the Garden with our expert guides exploring the natural scents of the Garden, learning how plants use scents to attract pollinators and examining famous scents in the Garden including peppermint, lemon myrtle, lavender, patchouli, and more.
This is the second annual Perfume Walk following last year’s sold-out event. Book now to avoid disappointment!
