On the occasion of the “Sentiment of the Unicorn” exhibition at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Maison Cire Trudon imagines an olfactory journey: across the rooms and cabinets, four fragrances illustrate the permanent collections differently by dialoguing
with them. Offbeat or racy, the perfumes make up an olfactory landscape which is superimposed on the works presented. Emeritus perfumer, Antoine Lie was inspired by the dreamlike atmosphere of the rooms to add an additional dimension to the museum reading. A man of contrasts, known for his ability to assemble at first glance contradictory materials and create surprise, the French nose was carried by this desire to deepen the dream.
Sometimes in complete immersion, sometimes in a targeted manner, the visitor discovers four olfactory universes. A green silk case, Diane's cabinet is an opportunity to pay homage to the goddess of the hunt, to the forest and to the night. In the room of the Unicorn, dark and fantastic, the perfume accentuates the mysterious and chimerical character of this imaginary animal. Can you find the other two worlds in the museum's permanent collections?
Feeling: hunting term which designates the odor left by any animal in its path and which indicates its presence more or less close.
