Just like a work of visual art, fashion, or architecture, a perfume can capture a time and place. Why, for example, was Molinard Habanita the perfect scented accessory for a flapper of the 1920s? And how did Christian Dior Diorissimo complement Dior’s fashion designs and their postwar ideals of femininity? This illustrated lecture will encourage us to think about fragrance both as a universal experience and as a specific cultural phenomenon of the 20th century.

Presented by Jessica Murphy, Ph.D., Museum Professional & Art Historian.

Jessica Murphy holds a Ph.D. in Art History and has worked in the museum field for more than a decade, at institutions including the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2015 she joined the staff of the Brooklyn Museum, where she is currently Manager of Visitor Engagement. She’s also fascinated by perfume and she shares her combined interests in art, fragrance, and cultural history in classes at the Brooklyn Brainery, Think Olio, and other venues. She’s a contributing writer at the leading perfume blog Now Smell This and she blogs independently as Perfume Professor.
