Perfume-making and the field of perfumery have been at the core of our activities from the very beginning. In fact, Scent Culture Institute originates from the three research and communication projects funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and based at Bern University of the Arts and the Business Department at Bern University of Applied Sciences. In addition, other involvements with the field of perfumery have developed. Thus, SCI associates offer informative, educational and thought-provoking lectures, presentations, talks, and workshops for conferences, panels, education programs, festivals and symposia.
