Called Le Nuage Parfumé (or Perfumed Cloud), it is comprised of a cloud suspended in the middle of a large see-through glass cubical structure standing at the base of the Palais de Tokyo museum and Musée d’Art Moderne. The project is the brainchild of Mathilde Laurent, Cartier’s in-house perfumer, who wants fragrance to be viewed differently.

And it is. People may enter five at a time through an antechamber, so the closely regulated interior temperature — cool below and much warmer above — is maintained. Then, one by one they climb a twisting metal staircase, which rises through a tangible, suspended cloud scented with L’Envol de Cartier, a perfume conceived by Laurent.

In most films music is brought in at the end, after the picture is more or less locked, to amplify the emotions the filmmaker wants you to feel.
