Dear Carmencita: Aroma Workshop

July 14, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm Dear Carmencita Pop-Up Bar

“Above all things get abroad, see the sunlight and everything that is to be seen.”   – John Singer Sargent

7-8:30pm – Olfactory Science with Aroma Workshop
Complimentary | Limited to first 25 participants
Maybe you’re visiting from somewhere far beyond, or maybe we’re a stop on your way home. Tonight, we invite guests to create a custom scent, inspired by the places that were known to influence Sargent. Aroma Workshop’s Perfumers join us to recreate an era when fragrances were individually created for men and women, using vintage ingredients like Sandalwood, Bergamot, Patchouli, Oakmoss, Rose and Gardenia. Packaged in an antique-style bulb atomizer for you to take home, this elegant experience will embody that of Sargent, and his sitters.

Dear Carmencita will open for regular service at 5pm.
