City Smells

Hungarian born artist Hilda Kozari in collaboration with French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour has put a recipe to the city smells of Helsinki, Budapest, and Paris. The installation consists of three bubbles representing the olfactory environments of the three cities. Bertrand Duchaufour translated Kozari's smell descriptors and assembled her ingredient list using each smell's corresponding raw material whenever possible. Along with the raw ingredient of thyme oil, the smell of pollution was represented by juniper tar oil and nutmeg provided the city smell of gasoline.

What would your city smell like??
