A collaboration between the Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA) and Scentory
Crafted for “Art Personalised: Masterpieces from the Hong Kong Museum of Art” exhibition
Art is all a matter of personality (by Marcel Duchamp), so are scents.
In the “Art Personalised: Masterpieces from the Hong Kong Museum of Art” exhibition, nearly 100 artworks are selected from the four core collections from the HKMoA. They are categorised into four personality types to present a multi-faceted world of art, including Adventurer, Perfectionist, Elegance and Fashionista. Artists Angela Yuen and Bovey Lee are also invited to create new works that tell the moving stories of their encounters with the museum collection. The exhibition runs from 30 June 2023.
Collaborated by the HKMoA and Scentory, a total of 5 scents are specially crafted for the four personality types and the artists’ new creations of the exhibition, for you to experience a special and personalised aesthetic journey.
Limited to 100 sets

Established in 1962, HKMoA is the first public art museum in the city, now custodian of an art collection of over 18,800 sets of items revolving around four core pillars: Chinese Antiquities, Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, China Trade Art and Modern and Hong Kong Art, representing the unique cultural legacy of Hong Kong's connection across the globe.
We aspire to take a lead in refreshing ways of looking at tradition and making art relevant, connecting art to people by curating a world of contrasts with a Hong Kong viewpoint, offering fresh experience and understanding. The HKMoA also frequently holds international exhibitions showcasing the prized collections of the mainland and overseas museums.
