The Institute for Art and Olfaction is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Los Angeles, CA. The Institute for Art and Olfaction advances public and artistic engagement with scent. We do this by initiating and supporting arts projects that utilize the medium of scent, by providing accessible and affordable education in our experimental laboratory as well as in partnership with institutions and community groups, and by celebrating excellence in independent and artisan perfumery through our yearly award mechanism, The Art and Olfaction Awards. Through these efforts, we extend the world of scent beyond its traditional boundaries of appreciation and use.
The Art and Olfaction Awardis a highly competitive and highly selective award, designed to raise interest and awareness for active independent, artisan and experimental perfumers from all countries. Our hope is that by shining a spotlight on perfumery’s most outstanding creators, we—in turn—will help generate support for independent perfumery, as a whole.
