The essences of Lorenzo Villoresi, perfumer and nose also of wine, at the service of art

Pinacoteca di Brera: the paintings enjoyed with all five senses. If the notes of myrrh “come out” from the Adoration of the Magi by Gaudenzio Ferrari

In the tasting and sensory experience of wine, the sense of smell is fundamental, and knowing how to recognize, and call with the right name, scents and aromas is very important: tasters and experts, over the years, have outlined the aromatic profiles of hundreds of different wines and grape varieties, and the world of wine, in this journey, has repeatedly crossed its path with that of a master perfumer of exception. Lorenzo Villoresi. Florentine, one of the most famous creators of perfumes on the international scene, already in 2007 selected 28 essences to let the wine lover enjoy and not only the emotions and atmosphere of a day spent in the hills of Chianti Classico, through the scents and aromas typical of wine: iris, violet, rose, black currant, cherry, plum, blackberry, raspberry, cut grass, licorice, curry, leather, coffee, cocoa, cloves, oakmoss, black pepper, Mediterranean, horse ... An experience that, now, ends at the Museum, at the Pinacoteca di Brera, which after having completed the renovation of the rooms aims to engage visitors with all five senses, and to take care of the part dedicated to the sense of smell has chosen the “nose” of Lorenzo Villoresi: the path, as told by the portal arte.it starts from the Adoration of the Magi by Gaudenzio Ferrari: approaching a special diffuser, you can feel the exotic notes of myrrh, just as if they proliferated from the painted scene, the second stage, the Madonna of the Candle by Carlo Crivelli, where from a blaze of plant decorations will emerge the sweetness of Lilium Candidum placed at the feet of the Virgin in a precious vase.
