Scents and Sensibility

This display of glass perfume bottles explores the history of perfumery and the use of glass as a product to contain and preserve scent. Our sense of smell is so powerful it can be used as a memory stimulant for those suffering with Dementia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
