Givaudan, the global leader in Fragrance and Beauty, is thrilled to partner with Le Château du Clos Lucé for the exhibition entitled ‘Leonard de Vinci et les parfums de la Renaissance’. In close collaboration with the event’s curators, Givaudan perfumers have created twenty-eight fragrances to be showcased throughout the olfactory experience, to offer visitors a unique multisensory experience filled with history, sensation and emotion.

“At Givaudan, we consider historic conservation to be of the utmost importance. With a focus on olfactory expertise and collective heritage, visitors are invited to uncover more about the fascinating Leonardo de Vinci as well as the enchanting world of perfumes. It should come as little surprise that Givaudan agreed to associate its know-how with this major exhibition, the first of its kind, by creating twenty-eight olfactory illustrations.”

Gilles Andrier, Chief Executive Officer Givaudan 

The exhibition showcases exclusive fragrances developed by renowned perfumers as Calice Becker, Shyamala Maisondieu, Nadège le Garlantezec, Rodrigo Flores Roux and Andréa Montanari. These olfactory creations allow visitors to immerse themselves in the scents that defined the Renaissance era.
