The Secret of Scent course will take place in a splendid hotel in one of the mountain villages of the Luberon region, Provence, on October, 20-24th 2016To book your vacation, visit Science & Vacation webpage.
In the course of our 3-day program, lectures will begin daily at 9 a.m and last for about 1h 45 min. Following a coffee break, you will have the opportunity to engage in a one-hour discussion with the lecturer. In your abundant free time, you will be at liberty to explore numerous local attractions and cultural monuments.
Luca Turin
Luca is best known for his work on olfaction, in which he proposed a novel mechanism for odorant recognition by receptors. This mechanism, inelastic electron tunneling, is one of the three instances in biophysics where an explicitly quantum explanation is required to account for experimental facts. In 1992, Luca wrote his first perfume guide.
Viktoria Frolova
Viktoria writes for her well known Bois de Jasmin perfume blog. Viktoria is a writer, journalist, vintage perfumes collector and professionally trained perfume specialist, who explores the world of senses, along with art, literature, and history.

Drawing on his long-standing experience in biophysics, quantum biology, molecular biology and fragrance chemistry, Luca Turin will explain what is known and — just as importantly— what hasn't been established yet about smell.
Fragrance expert and journalist Victoria Frolova will explain the principles of fragrance construction and history. Her professional training gave her a glimpse inside the secret and competitive world of the perfume industry, and in turn, she will share her experience with you. You will learn about the perfumer’s palette, smell rare vintage fragrances and learn exercises to sharpen your sense of smell.

They will also learn the basics of fragrance composition and will get a glimpse into the métier of a perfumer by creating a fragrance accord.
