Longwood Gardens Is “Making Scents”

Follow your nose and smell your way right through Longwood Gardens' newest exhibition.

Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance, running now through November 21, is the perfect way to experience the beginning of spring.

This fragrant experience will take visitors on a journey through the long history of perfume and give them in depth understanding of how fragrances are made.

“Making Scents: The Art and Passion of Fragrance" will inspire and educate guests about the storied history and evocative power of scent,” Longwood Gardens Director Paul Redman said. “This exhibition is so perfectly suited to the setting of Longwood, where guests can experience first-hand the fragrant plants and beauty of nature that are at the heart of the fragrance story.”

Making Scents is divided into four different sections: Into a Fragrant World, The Art of Perfume and Fragrant Gardens, The Science of Fragrance and Your Fragrant Garden.

Longwood will also host Fragrant Fridays once a month to accompany the exhibition. Themes like Hmmmmm, chocolate; Ewwwww, Stinky and Marvelous Mint are just a few of the things in store for visitors to Kennett Square.

Guests will also be able to create personal scents by combining their favorite fragrances at scent stations around the garden.

This family-friendly event has something to please even the pickiest of noses. So grab the family and breath in the beauty of spring at Longwood Gardens.  Tickets are $16 for adults 18 and older. Students with ID get in for $6, seniors for $14 and admission is free for kids four and under.
