Taking in the breeze along the Hudson River these days? Mosey your way up from the new Whitney to check out "No. 5 in a New Light," Chanel's pop-up exhibit that's celebrating the iconic fragrance at the end of 14th Street. Visitors are encouraged to "let their senses guide them through the creation, cultivation, composition, abstraction, and revelation during their journey of the space." Expect to learn about the fragrance's note history, for which 80 samples were made before a final version was chosen, and a lesson in bottle design.
Harper's Bazaar recommends going at sunset for a quick ten-minute walkthrough as pink and orange light bounces off the wall projections. The exhibit runs daily from noon to 8pm through May 17th, and you can reserve a time spot to guarantee your entry.
