Paris. A renowned perfumer sees a Hollywood movie playing in space. Suddenly the scary realization: she understands the universe as a place without smells!
Munich. A search for clues: exploring the secret history of smell, its poetic and political aspects. Which myths, which narratives are entwined with scents and smells? Through movement, archives, interviews and anecdotes Sandra Chatterjee and her artistic team navigate through new, old and unexpected secrets of the surrounding worlds of fragrance in Egypt, Europe, India and Oman.
