  • A deceptively small museum, Aftel Archive is jam-packed with not just scents but also compendiums of information, stored in ancient tomes and the wonderful family's brain! Mandy is incredible - so knowledgeable and sweet - and this is overall an educational, intimate, and wondrous experience.
  • A wonderful and absolutely unique sensory experience! The archive includes a large number of experiential elements, from containers of raw materials (sourced from travels all over the world), to over 300 natural scents to smell and test. Very eye-opening; highly recommend!
