Scented Fans

Scented fans have a long history
The Fan Museum in Greenwich, London
current exhibit click here
Air à la Mode

features fans of Sylvain Le Guen
with one, scented by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian click here
through 13 November 2011

Books for sale include one from the exhibit on the sound of fans as live music plays. Hadn't thought of that extra sound of air ruffling en masse.
