Spanish Paradise: Gardens of the Alhambra doesn’t open to the public until tomorrow, but today, Members get a first look, or maybe I should say first sniff, at our latest exhibition. Why first sniff? Because this exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory smells AMAZING! And it sounds pretty good, too. The tinkling of water, soft strains of guitar music, and bird tweets meld together with the heady perfume and sublime gardens to create a true paradise on earth.
