Talking about Roman Perfume and Smells

I spent my morning showing 20, 5-7 year old children the Roman Unguentaria! Miniature Perfume Shoppe provided the Unguentaria, and I spoke about smelling and perfume 🙂

I think they had a good time! They were interested in the fact that the rose had no smell, compared to the rose absolute I brought. They all preferred the rose absolute 🙂 They thought the orange and cinnamon smelled most like the oils. The cinnamon and orange oils both smelled like “YUM! I’m Hungry!”

They were very enthusiastic and asked me many questions.

All in all, I think it was a success!  Tonight I’ll be at the Ames Public Library doing something similar, and tomorrow I’ll be repeating today’s presentation.
