Scent Bottles: from Ceremony to Seduction is the third in a series of exhibitions organised at Palazzo Falson Historic Museum in Mdina.

Treasured as a rare and precious substance, scent has played a significant role in ritual and religion, myth and medicine, splendour and seduction for some 4,000 years. This exhibition showcases the bottles created to contain the scents of the centuries, tracing their history from the early origins up to recent years.

Over 250 scent bottles have been brought together from Palazzo Falson’s permanent collection and other private and museum collections.

The exhibition is guest-curated by Joseph Galea Naudi and coordinated by Lisa Attard. Admission to the exhibition is free.

Scent Bottles: from Ceremony to Seduction is open until Saturday, December 31.
