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.
