Exhibits tackle questions like: How do the industry’s top “noses” create scents? Why was the original Eau Sauvage by Edmond Roudnitska such a popular bestseller? How is smell linked to memory? The answers are inside the stately mansion that was once the residence of the Roederer Champagne family, and more recently, Christian Lacroix’s maison de couture. At the end of the visit, a robot will fetch the fragrance matching your olfactory profile in the museum's gorgeous store.
