A Peak into Palettes for the Senses

 

Palettes sign

 

Palettes for the Senses: Art + Scent Demystified is a multi-sensory exhibition by Indigo Perfumery and HEDGE Gallery that allows you to experience art through all of the senses, including the sense of smell.

This new approach to viewing and interpreting art begins with works by Hedge-represented artists. Each piece of art is accompanied by a smell station containing a glass dome that is lifted to sniff the accompanying fragrance curated by Indigo Perfumery. Combining the visual and olfactory elements allows you to experience the art in a whole new way.

Indigo is also offering the Palettes for the Senses Sampler Set at Indigo. You will receive six 1 ml. spray samples (After the FloodSulmonaDupont CircleFathom VAnabasisAu Coeur Du Desert) plus a surprise fragrance that you won’t forget!

Palettes for the Senses is open until March 4th at HEDGE Gallery. Local Cleveland residents are invited to experience this intimate and immersive adventure that highlights scent as an avenue of engaging the viewer on a visceral level.

Here is your chance to experience all seventeen of the artworks with the accompanying fragrances paired by Indigo:

Perfume pairing: Dupont Circle by Monsillage

While seemingly delicate, Shield (pink spikes)’s inherent strength is reflected in the beauty of the rose, the main floral note in Dupont Circle. The cedar, patchouli and oakmoss in its base offer strength and grounding.
