Inspired by the success of the Open Content Program, which provides free access to over 10,000 artwork images for any purpose, the Getty is pleased to announce the launch of the world’s first art history cologne, Eau d’Open.
With a base of parchment and pottery sherds, tempered by high notes of varnish, Sèvres porcelain, and Renaissance typography, the unisex fragrance will begin shipping from the Getty Store by May 1, with free digital download planned for later this year.
