Visitors can discover the fragrances of civilizations past in Anatolia. Along with various dominant scents such as coffee, mint and cologne, more than 50 scents, including saffron, frankincense and amber, are on display at the Erimtan Archaeology and Art Museum.

The exhibition also presents fragrances specific to Istanbul.
There are specially designed mechanical mechanisms to smell the fragrances. In addition to beautiful scents we are used to, the exhibition offers many scents that we have not experienced and answers questions about the relationship between perception of taste, scent and memory. The exhibition also has objects, perfume and cologne bottles from a special collection with the contribution of the Gülsha line that tells the story of how these fragrances were produced and kept.
International fragrance producer MG Gülçiçek supports culture and art since its foundation in 1961. It produced the fragrances at the exhibition to accompany a historical journey that will ensure that Anatolian civilizations are not forgotten.
