Sniffapalooza’s holiday events have become legendary, and for this year’s celebration we’ve been dreaming of an interactive experience that combines extraordinary smells, tastes, textures, creativity, learning, and stimulating conversation joined together in perfect harmony. We have collaborated with incredible partners to bring our fantasy to reality, and it is with extreme pleasure that we invite you Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Fragrance Luncheon at Mercato Trattoria on Saturday, December 15th in New York City!
Our journey begins at noon as we gather together for a welcome cocktail created exclusively for our event in the warm embrace of Mercato, which was listed among the 20 Best New Restaurants in 2010. We are thrilled to work with Mercato’s Executive Chef, Emanuel Concas, who not only boasts an impressive gastronomic resume, but is also a fragrance enthusiast with a deep appreciation for niche scents!
Also joining us will be special guest Francois Damide, fragrance expert and founder of Crafting Beauty, a private-label perfume house. We have teamed with Emanuel to produce a six-course meal influenced by raw materials and nine fragrances hand-picked to create a unique culinary and sensory experience. Accompanying the dishes will be specially-chosen wines to enhance both taste and smell. We have all worked together extensively to edit and refine our selections, building the courses ingredient by ingredient, fragrance by fragrance, artistically melding taste and scent.
As a special holiday treat, all attendees will receive gift bags with samples of the featured fragrances, and a raffle basket filled with scented treasures will be won by one very lucky person! Due to the private and interactive nature of this incredible event, spaces are extremely limited. The registration fee for Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Fragrance Luncheon is $85, and includes six curated courses, the best bread in the city, one custom cocktail, two glasses of wine (non-alcoholic options available), tax and gratuity, and gift bag.
