This past Sunday, over fifty fragrance enthusiasts gathered at Back Label Wine Merchants for an indulgent afternoon exploring the scents and tastes of perfume, wine, and candy. Five distinctive wines were selected by Patrick Watson, owner of Back Label, and matched with scent sommelier Kelly Jones’ Kelly & Jones Notes of Wine Eau de Parfum Collection. Glyn and Kelly Jaime (aka The Candy Man) added delicious confections from The Sweet Shop NYC to round out the unique
pairings triplings. Click through to get a glimpse of our sensory celebration!
Sniffapalooza celebrates fragrance as an art, and we love to create unique events where we can explore the olfactive universe with kindred spirits and combine fragrance with other sensorial pursuits to heighten our awareness and appreciation. With this inspiration in mind, we have developed Sniffapalooza’s Fragrance, Wine and Candy Pairing Event, which will be held on Sunday, August 17th in New York City!
For twelve years, Sniffapalooza has traversed the universe in search of beautiful sensory experiences to share with you. And along the way our hearts have been touched by the kindness of amazing people! With extreme appreciation for the generosity and loyalty extended to us, we have joyfully made it our mission to give back and we are thrilled to have donated the funds from our events to many charities over the years.
An extraordinary opportunity to help the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund at Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has come our way from one of our long-time Sniffapalooza members, Lauren McDonald. We are excited to tell you about it because it not only includes a gift for you, but the entire proceeds will be donated to the charity to foster further research for pancreatic cancer, which currently has a 5% survival rate.
