Four of the paintings at Charing Cross Hospital have been turned into perfumes, to explore if there are benefits for memory. Come and enjoy the four very different and very unique scents and see if you can spot the paintings around the hospital.

About

The designers at 'on the mend' have made four perfumes inspired by the art at Charing Cross Hospital.

The sense of smell is one of our most developed yet least understood sense and is known to be beneficial to the health of those with dementia and brain injuries.

Charing Cross hospital has specialist stroke and neuro-rehabilitation units as well as elderly care wards.

In partnership with the Imperial Health Charity, our aim is to find a more inclusive and unusual way to enjoy the amazing art collection at Charing Cross.

Demistify looks to use the sense of smell to demystify memory, showing how important smelling is to our everyday experiences.

Come and enjoy the perfume collection, and see if you can spot the paintings around the hospital...
