Our Mission

Our mission is to support education and the practice of arts and culture in South Florida. The Doctor Aromas Foundation creates opportunities for experimentation and innovation and encourages the exchange of ideas through exhibitions, competitions, education and outreach. We place a special focus on fragrance research and its application as part of the creative and educational process.

What is Art of Aromas?

The Art of Aromas is a Visual Arts Scholarship Competition sponsored by the Doctor Aromas Foundation. The competition seeks to introduce the idea of using fragrances in Art to students attending Dade County Schools from grades 10 to 12. The making of a new aroma is a creative act conceived for the sense of smell. With a very long history, this craft has been passed down through centuries around the world and today is recognized as a true art form. In the same way that opera is a fusion of theater and music, that film is an evolution of photography, that Pina Bausch blends dance and drama, we propose that the combination of aromas and visual arts could be an art form in itself. So, the goal of this competition is to promote the concept that aromas can be part of a visual piece of art, adding a new dimension to it. Participating students will use a new scent developed by Doctor Aromas in their artwork. This fragrance should inspire their artistic creativity and serve as a motivation for the artwork they will submit.
