Tickets for the Aftel Archive of Curious Scents

Our hours are 10 am-6 pm every Saturday -- we sell advance tickets here online and also can often take walk-ins. If you have a gift pass or complimentary ticket please call or write us to schedule your visit. The Aftel Archive of Curious Scents is a small museum devoted to natural aromatics and artifacts. Here you can choose from more than 200 essences to take 4 samples home. See the raw botanical materials that become perfume essences, pore over turn-of-the-century perfume books, be knocked out by a 16th century symbolorum, and explore the wonders in our cabinet of curiosities. Outside in our Garden Annex, smell 40 different essences including the historical animal scents, some 100-year old essences, and the legendary oud oil. Every item in the Archive is authentic and original, some dating back hundreds of years. Learn and experience the history of fragrance. More information and photos at
