Jewish Noses

Great perfumers are called "noses". Jews have been involved in perfumery throughout history including Estée Lauder and Helena Rubinstein. Many great German chemists were Jewish. We will start in biblical times and work our way up to the present day. About ten smell strips will be sent around the room so that participants can smell what we are talking about. It will be a lot of fun and people will learn, for instance, why Channel #5 is a Jewish perfume.
