La fabuleuse histoire de l'Eau de Cologne (The fabulous history of Eau de Cologne)
21 June 2019 – 05 January 2020
The International Museum of Perfumery is organising for summer 2019 an exhibition devoted to Eau de Cologne, with the scientific and financial support of ARMIP. Crossing centuries since its creation in 1709, Eau de Cologne is today an essential part of perfumery, a real style exercise which all perfumers take on, adding their personal touch. Its hesperideous notes of citrus and rosemary make it refreshing, tonic, dynamic and light.
Of all perfumes, Eau de Cologne has an obvious, readable olfactory structure, which everyone can understand, enshrined over the years and in the history of perfumery. It is a highly technical perfume which is yet very simple to produce, which does not mean that it is easy to make. It plays with the dandy, the aristocrat, the punk, the banker, the worker and the bourgeois. It has no type and covers all social strata.
