Three of these ancient bottles are in the exhibit.

 Indulge your senses by enjoying an interpretation of an ancient Roman perfume.

Indigo Perfumery will host the traveling exhibition of ancient Roman perfume bottles, The Mini Museum of Perfume History’s Unguent, Unguentarium and U.

The exhibit will make its only stop in Ohio on Thursday, August 13 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

On display will be a Roman ungentarium (perfume bottle) and two ancient lachrymatories (tear catchers) dating to the first and second centuries A.D.

Two perfumes, one recreating an ancient Roman unguent (oil-based perfume) and the other, a modern day interpretation of the ancient scent (an alcohol-based eau de parfum), were created by artisanal natural perfumer, Amanda Feeley, to accompany the exhibit.

The Roman artifacts are part of the permanent ancient perfume bottle collection of The Mini Museum of Perfume History in Houston, Texas. 

 Next stop: the state of Washington.
