Our memories are strongly linked to scent that can instantly bring us back to a different time and place: a former lover, the house of your grandmother or the gym at your old school. Could we also evoke the past of a city by scent? Visual artist Sanne Vaassen designed a walk of scents through the history of the city of Maastricht. During this walk, visitors can discover parts of the city’s past by smelling herbs, flowers, and extracts.
In Search Of Lost Time is a 12 kilometers walk through the city center and the outskirts of Maastricht. You can also break up the route into several shorter walks. The artist designed a guide for the walk that contains a map and scent sticks. The guide costs 20 euro. Do you wish to collect a prepared guide for the walk at the reception, please reserve one here: email@example.com. You can also of course come in and see how the guide is prepared.
For walking enthusiasts and art collectors Sanne Vaassen also designed a special edition with small bottles in a handmade leather folder. This special edition can be purchased for 200 euro excluding shipping costs.
You can also order the guide to be shipped. The scents are prepared just before shipping, and we take the hygienic measures into account while preparing and shipping you guide. The cost is 20 euro excluding shipping costs for the regular guide, 200 euro excluding shipping costs for the special edition.
Note: In Search Of Lost Time is only available in Dutch.
