A competition to celebrate the special exhibition Perfume flacons – vessels for seductive fragrances
Noble, trendy, amusing, dreamy: Who will ascend to the fragrance heavens and submit the winning flacon?
21 October – 17 December 2017
What would a perfume be without its flacon? A breath of nothing, an ephemeral something. Perfumes are a small luxury and they deserve a container to match. People from times as early as ancient Egypt knew how to carry their fragrances with them permanently in beautifully crafted containers designed for the purpose.
Alluring, our offer
Over 500 bottles from the past 5,000 years can be seen in our special exhibition. Anyone who lets himself be inspired will breathe in the scent of the new, fresh ideas. The one who then brings to life the most beautiful creation from this subtle inspiration will soon experience the glorious scent of a winner’s joy.
Enter a world of seduction
The flacons needed to participate in the competition can be obtained free of charge in the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel (Toy Worlds Museum Basle) starting 21 October 2017. How the flacons are spiced up, refined, made into masterpieces, and transformed into dream worlds is absolutely up to you. But the due date is set in stone. They must be turned in no later than 17 December 2017.
We need time to think
Participants can take a breather afterwards. The flacons will be judged by the public from 27 January to 18 February 2018. The masterpiece that attracts the most points wins. Flacons will be displayed in the shop windows in the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel (Toy Worlds Museum Basle) after voting has stopped and until 18 March 2018.
