The power of olfactory jewelry

Sensitive to the powers materials hold, the American, Jacquie Aiche, reinterprets the olfactory pendants, today disappeared but once very fashionable especially in the nineteenth century. Fabergé, Tiffany & Co. and Boucheron produced some magnificent examples. Sculpted in agate, turquoise or moonstone, Jacquie Aiche’s creations take the form of vials containing essential oils. Truly contemporary amulets, these pendants contain close at hand enough to revive a memory or to take care of the body.
