Perfume and Seduction is a temporary exhibit at Hillwood of  the finest examples of perfume bottles, gold boxes, porcelain objects, and other eighteenth-century luxury items that were used in the bathing and dressing ritual known as la toilette.

Arrive at 10:30am for a docent tour of the gardens, to be followed by a tour of the mansion  at 11:30 if you wish.  The exhibit can be toured individually.  After the tour, as your time allows, we can enjoy lunch at the café.

Members have generously donated ten free passes (admission for additional guests is $18) first-come-first-served to BMAV members or potential members.  RSVP to reserve your spot.  Also let us know if you would like carpool to the free parking lot onsite and if you plan to stay for lunch at 1 p.m. so we can make a reservation.
