Event Recap: Sniffapalooza Discovered Scents at Cosmoprof NA in Las Vegas!

Team Karen It’s hard to believe that Cosmoprof NA happened at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas over a week ago! We returned home to NYC with lots of great memories, new friends, and a renewed passion for artisanal fragrances and the talented people who create them. All of the amazing brands we hand-picked for our Discover Scent area brought innovative ideas to the rapidly-evolving niche fragrance industry. You can read more about them on Colognoisseur – our good friend Mark Behnke’s genius blog that delves deep. Meanwhile, here are some of our favorite moments of Discover Scent. (Click the images for details!)

Come See Us at Discover Scent! Cosmoprof NA in Las Vegas, July 24 – 26, 2016!

Scenting Hamilton: Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Will Smell Your Story?

Team Karen Hamilton

We were lucky enough to score last-minute tickets to Broadway’s Hamilton a few weeks ago. It was a life-changing experience, and we can’t stop vibrating! The show inspired us in so many ways, including wondering what fragrances the characters would wear. Here are our scentful musings. Talk less, spritz more!

Alexander Hamilton:  John Varvatos Dark Rebel He’s young, scrappy and fragrant and he’s not throwing away his shot. Or his cologne… the Schuyler sisters really dig it.

Aaron Burr: Chanel Egoiste He wanted to be in the room where it happened, but he wasn’t invited. And he’s pissed. Burr spritzed first!

Marquis de Lafayette: Caron L’Anarchiste Dreaming of life without a monarchy, he’s looking for revolution and revelation on two continents. And a classic French Eau de Cologne with citrus and lavender.

King George: Creed Royal Water Oceans rise, empires fall, but his loyal, royal subjects have had enough of him. Luckily he still smells fab. Awesome. Wow.
