Exhibition opening hours: Monday to Friday 9.30am-5pm

Natural scents have healing powers and evoke images and memories that Claudia de Vos expresses in her art objects and installations. These scents, originating from flowers, plants and trees, can actually be smelled in the artworks themselves.


The exhibition includes fragrant ceramic statues, paintings and even tapestries. With Geurzicht, Claudia opens a window to the world of natural scents.

Happy Spirit Days
feel good festival
10-11-12 juni
met op 10 juni lezing


The Happy Spirit Days will start again on Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June 2022. This year's three-day (day) festival will feature prominent speakers, contemporary workshops and atmospheric performances.

I will be giving a lecture on odor psychology on Friday 10 June  (Dutch language). 

In this lecture, with scent experience, I will tell you more about natural scents and their effects on the psyche on the basis of various scent experiences. How is smell perception related to our well-being, how does it influence our behavior and why is the effect on our memories so strong? The Jung thesis, explaining different layers of scent experience, is the common thread that leads us through the endless possibilities of the applications of natural scents indoors and outdoors.

Hiking nature experience with smell and feel

booked on request


location: forest in Hilversum

.We go out with a select group

Contribution: 35, - per person

Dress warm and waterproof, bring your own cup; we provide tea.

When it drizzles we go anyway, during downpours we move the experience of nature

Together with nature experience expert Agnes Meijs and scent psychologist Claudia de Vos, you will experience the forest with all your senses.


Agnes knows better than anyone how to perceive the forest in an 'earthly' way through forest baths, among other things. She has years of experience as a nature coach where she uses nature as a mirror to discover yourself.


Claudia lets you become aware of the scents that nature produces with your nose. She lets you experience a spectrum of forest scents; the scent of the tree itself, its essential oil and the related stories. With a relaxing scent meditation in the forest for dessert. An afternoon of 'getting away from it all.'


And those who are captivated by the fragrance experience and cannot get enough of it, can purchase the new book by Claudia 'Fragrance Psychology for Everyone' afterwards!



Exhibition 'SAMENHANG'
virtual exhibition
to visit


Art connects


It seems as if we are getting further and further apart. The current way in which we have to organize our lives contributes to this feeling. The lack of proximity through touch, isolation and facelessness make the search for connection quite difficult. How do we connect with each other today? Let's see the real, whole person again? Are we doing it by adding structure to the chaos? Can we use other senses to overcome this lack of physical contact? Questions you can ask where the answer can be found in one common denominator: art. Connection arises through cohesion.(Samenhang)

Botanica 2020 was the fifth edition of an international and independent conference series that showcases excellence in clinical aromatherapy and related herbal therapeutics. It brought together researchers, aromatherapists, herbal medicine practitioners, allied health professionals, aromatic and medicinal plant growers, distillers and suppliers from around the world.

For this conference I had created a special created virtual olfactory ART Tour. Scents to go with the artworks can be ordered via this site.

More info

Tree heritages (Neuzen in het Pinetum) consists of a special scent, art and tree path located in botanical garden Pinetum Blijdenstein at Hilversum (the Netherlands). Pinetum Blijdenstein has one of the world's most complete collections of Gymnosperms - and is part of the Dutch National Plant Collection. The path I designed in 2014 for the Pinetum is a path that leads past a selection of trees. At five of these trees are chests placed with scented artifacts and audio, referring to the trees, bringing their stories to life.

group exhibition 
de Onafhankelijken
April 30 to May 8, 2022

'Island'  is the large group exhibition of the artists' association De Onafhankelijken and their guests in Loods 6. This exhibition shows a great diversity of art with the common theme  'Island'. Each artist interprets this theme in their own way.

My guest for this exhibition is Vincent van de Geest, he makes graphic ART. His abstract, still art  in an urban environment is an exciting counterpart to my work. I show the fragrance artwork ' Stand alone Pine' , a double-sided tapestry with the integrated scent of the Scots pine, in which the same kind of stillness takes place in nature.

'Wild scents at' Die Brücke '- between nose and works of art'
Museum Kranenburgh
September 26, 2021

We connect with the outside world through our senses. Most visual artists use seeing to convey their inner world to the viewer. In the expressionism of 'Die Brücke' color and shape are used to convey a feeling; the idyll of the outdoors and the connection with nature in sensual colors and exuberant shapes. What would happen if we replaced seeing with smelling? How would the work of die Brücke look like? Can color and shape be translated into scent?

Fragrance workshop - Sensory lab


In this experimental sensory lab in museum Kranenburgh, scent psychologist and visual artist Claudia de Vos takes you into the world of smelling. We explore the effect of natural scents on the psyche in which memories and the ingredients of natural scents play a major role. You choose one of the works of the Brücke and you go to work in small (corona-proof) groups to make a 'translation' of the work into fragrance


During this sensory lab you can also experience one of Claudia's scent artworks
