You’re in a room and someone walks by.  Suddenly you are awash in the scent of springtime and roses, even though it’s snowing outside.  How can that be? Join us to learn how perfume makers manage to capture the scent of a rose in a bottle of clear liquid, and why it has such a strong effect on nerve receptors and memories.  We’ll explore the science of scent as we create our own solid-perfume take-home!
