My life at the textile
«The most striking quality of the perfume is to carry us through memories and time. Guided by emotions, olfaction awakes memory and allows a trip otherwise impossible.» - Alexandra

The ozonic head note recalls the proximity of the hydroelectric dam, the vital engine of the plant. The heart notes of the perfume are formed around a wet hay accord reminiscent of the smell of wet and quilted raw cotton. The base notes are heavy and warm, like the ambient air and the deafening noises that reigned in the factory. "

MY LIFE AT THE TEXTILE
Work, laughter, and rebellion… Discover through this first temporary exhibition the daily life of Magog's textile workers, who will touch you with their stories and anecdotes of the past.
In collaboration with the Magog Historical Society, the Merry House’s first temporary exhibition will focus on workers in Magog’s textile industry and will feature the stories of former workers. The textile industry played an important role in the development of the City of Magog, from its beginnings in the early 1880s until its closure in the early 2000s. Numerous Magog residents worked at Dominion Textile. This story unfolds through the eyes of the working class and their personal stories.
A production of the Corporation de la maison Merry, in collaboration with Diane Bernier Design, Éric Corriveau and Sans Cravate.
