Running in parallel to the Louvre Abu Dhabi's exhibition "10,000 Years of Luxury," the olfactory art installation "Unidentified Scented Object: The Perfumed Cloud," delves into the ancient origins of perfume and seeks to redefine the perception of scent.Created by Cartier's in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent, visitors are invited to enter a transparent glass cube resting on water and to climb a spiral staircase leading above a floating cloud of layered, changeable fragrance. The cloud, made by the technology of Transsolar KlimaEngineering, is created using a layer of cold air, with a layer of hot air, to create an artificial cloud of scented mist.As visitors pass through the cloud, scents of cardamom and oud give way to a musky rose that becomes a fresh, floral fragrance once above the cloud.
