What is it

You will be taken into a special sensory experience through taste, smell, music and a guided meditation. This can create a greater receptivity for creating good intentions and finding answers to possible inner questions. Everyone can participate at their own emotional level.

How does it work
By using the active substances of pure raw cocoa with its explicit taste and the fragrances of the rose, the senses are opened. A guided meditation takes this experience further through your body. While listening to music - generated live by a rose - we perform some 'ritual' actions with rose scent to reinforce your positive intentions.
At the end of the joint experience we have a light lunch; a mildly spiced Dahl soup with nan bread as served in temples in India. There will then be an opportunity, for those who wish, to exchange experiences.

Some experiences of participants:

“It was a wonderful meeting of two kinds of experiences; one really complemented the other, I wouldn't have wanted to miss it.”
"A gathering full of togetherness, love and affection.. with a delicious scent."
“Great experience where we could also experience our own piece together, a real deepening.”

“An experience that went from my head to my toes, I experienced it as very caring and safe. It was a smooth collaboration.”

"I really felt my heart open up completely."

Natural scents have a healing power and evoke images and memories that I express in my art objects and installations. These scents, coming from flowers, plants and trees, can also actually be smelled in the works of art themselves.


In this group exhibition I show the olfactory tapestry 'Woudh Wide Web'.

booked on request


location: forest in Hilversum

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!

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.

'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
