The American Museum of Natural History will host Adventures in the Global Kitchen: Aromatics Along the Silk Road.
Featuring Perfumer Mandy Aftel
Frankincense, myrrh, patchouli, and jasmine were among the valuable commodities traded along the ancient Silk Road, and they are still prized today. Renowned perfumer Mandy Aftel, the nose behind Aftelier perfumes, will awaken the senses as she leads visitors on an aromatic journey.
Attendees will learn about the fascinating world of fragrances and have the chance to sample authentic and pure essences during a discussion about aromatics’ history. This program is part of a series of tastings and lectures for adults and educational programming for children that are being offered in conjunction with the exhibition Traveling the Silk Road: Ancient Pathway to the Modern World, on view until August 15, 2010.
