“On Forgetting | Filling the Flask”, perfume and project by Catherine Haley Epstein


I’m honored to be participating in the inaugural AIX Artisan Independent Experimental Scent Fair at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles! Next week I will be presenting my fragrance for the project “On Forgetting | Filing the Flask”. I am among some incredibly talented perfumers doing some terrific, innovative work in the field of niche perfume. Please join me! Many, many thanks to the good people at The Institute for Art & Olfaction for their support of my work, and the curators at the Hammer Museum with a brilliant vision to see fragrance as a compelling medium for art.

May 6–8, 2016

An international selection of fragrance makers will upend your preconceptions of perfume at this three-day artisan, independent, experimental scent fair. Browse highly conceptual—even unexpected—scents; participate in workshops or a panel; and attend the fragrance fête of the season, The Institute for Art and Olfaction’s Third Annual Art and Olfaction Awards with emcee Zackary Drucker.
