MORE INFORMATION: “MAKING ANCIENT SCENTS” WORKSHOPS

Getty_2The IAO teamed up with the Getty to develop and implement a historically-accurate walk-up perfume-making experience, as part of Getty Villa’s summer-long ‘Roman Holidays’ program.

Open to all Getty Villa visitors, join us as we grind and pipette our way to creating custom vials of ancient perfume-  in one of the most stunning settings in Los Angeles. We will use materials just like ancient perfumers did, and every participant leaves with their own vial.

The workshop on April 1 + April 15 is led by IAO director Saskia Wilson-Brown. Further workshops in April are led by Smelly Vials Perfume Club members Kendra Gaeta and Jeffrey Paul. Subsequent workshops are led by Getty docents.

This program is free with Getty Villa attendance
Saturdays and Sundays through August
11am to 3pm

You won’t need a passport to travel back in time at the Roman Holidays celebration this spring and summer. Discover the sights (and smells!) of ancient Rome, offer your prayers to Venus, read your future in a sheep’s liver, and enjoy live musical and comedy performances by the historically hysterical Troubadour Theater Company.
