“The capacity to smell acts on the brain in fantastic and possibly unknown ways. ”
– Maxine Midtbo
What & Where:
Cincinnati, Ohio-based artist and founder of Memor studio.
Vetiver reminds me of Spring. I’m drawn to woodsy, almost masculine scents that are sophisticated and call to mind the natural environment or a higher self.
Perfumery as Medicine:
The capacity to smell acts on the brain in fantastic and possibly unknown ways. If smelling a specific scent can transport you back to a moment in time or bring up a feeling, there’s no telling how else it can alter our mind, mood, and the health of our being.
