Perfumes of the Renaissance & Song Dynasty

As it was a prosperous time in China during the Song Dynasty, scholars had the interest to appreciate and understand the beauty of scent. Coincidentally, late Song Dynasty coincided with the beginnings of the Renaissance in the West, and it was during this period where the art and culture of scent began to bloom.

As such, we have invited Mr Samson Ng, history and antiques expert to share with us the influence and development of scent in Chinese culture. At the same time, he will be showcasing a collection of antique wares used to appreciate fragrance. Parfumerie Trésor will then introduce French perfume development during that period.

*Instructor: Mr. Samson Ng.

Dates: 11, 25 May; 8 June (Thu) & 7, 21 May; 4 June (Sun) 2023
