What to expect

Inside the MÚSES, a unique technology and sensory museum in Europe, you will be able to keep alive the tradition of officinal herbs in Piedmont and to go on a journey through the art and craft of perfume, the essences and the flavors of the country.

Following the interactive exhibition through the video installations, site-specific works by international contemporary artists, the secrets of the perfumery art will be revealed. The installations of the exhibition, made by international artists, are conceived to explain in a very evocative way the metamorphosis of contemporary art into the world of officinal herbs and perfumery.

The heart of Palazzo Taffini is the Garden of Senses, designed to stimulate the visitor’s senses through the colors of flowers, the texture of the leaves and the essences’ scent.

The tour will end into the fully equipped lab at MÚSES called The Sensory Room, where you will play the “scented notes” game: the peculiarity of the aromatic notes composing a perfume, the olfactory families and the virtues of some essential oils. You could also pick your favorite scents and to perfume a nice souvenir with it!
