Make your own flower perfume: the "Flower Power Special" programme has invited a real olfactory artist ...

Naturkundemuseum Bayern

The scent of flowers is often pleasant for humans, but in nature it also has important functions, for example to communicate with pollinators. In this open drop in programme, led by Berlin-based olfactory artist Klara Ravat, visitors can learn about different building blocks of flower scent and mix them to create their own flower perfume to take home!

And right next door, you can smell the scent of an extinct plant in the current installation "Resurrecting the Sublime".
