Hello perfume people. After much scheduling (and procrastination) I’ve decided to head back to Milan for Esxence tomorrow. Yes I can finally say I’m getting excited now. This will be my second time at this huge trade show and I have a somewhat better idea of how to approach it now. Well let’s just say I know I won’t get around all of the stalls that’s for sure. There will be new perfumes to try and of course I’ll endeavour to see as much of Milan that is possible in three days.
This year I intend to go to far more of the workshop sessions. These are perfume lectures extroadinaire.
Talks I’m Aiming To Get To :
Building A Brand And Retaining Relevance : Key Drivers of Artistic Perfumery Share Their Stories
What Is The Future Of The Niche In France? Will it dissolve in the mainstream or will it inspire more independent shop owners?
Announcement Of The Finalists Of The Art And Olfaction Awards
Book Presentation – Bad Girls Perfume by Sarah Colton
Femmes Parfumeurs – Portraits
New Fragrances : A 10 – Year Review, 2006 – 2015 by Michael Edwards
Of course there will be people to meet up and I’m really looking forward to catching up with friends and hopefully making some new ones too.
So folks, follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to catch my photos, short videos and scented snippets. I’ll post here when I can as well. Last year’s wifi was woeful, so fingers crossed there will be some improvements or I’ll just have to duck out to a cafe on a semi regular basis.
Thrilling! I look forward to following along on IG and FB. Please let us know what gems you glean from the workshops. Enjoy!
Thanks Julie. I’m excited now and am road tripping it there with a girlfriend, so I know it’s going to be better than last year! x
Enjoy and have a brilliant time. Cant wait to hear about your experiences and all the new perfumes.
Thank you so much. I will definitely be reporting back, with photos too!
Have a great time my dear. I can’t wait to live vicariously through you perfume romp!
Hey Mr Hound I just hope I will not be overcome by fumes!
Enjoy every minute. Even the overwrought, exhausted, can’t smell anymore because my sinusus are rebelling, too tired to even breathe moments.
At home now a day later – I left early and still recovering. It was great though. Hope to see you there one of these days. x x
Fingers definitely crossed for that.
