Elements Showcase, Winter 2013 Edition

Nothing works better to chase away the winter doldrums than a few days in paradise. Since that’s not on our agenda right now, we escaped to the next best thing. Two days of scent exploration at the exceptionally well-curated Elements Showcase in NYC. Fragrance, beauty, design, and art were all elegantly displayed on the first and sixth floors of Skylight West, a recently renovated industrial building turned event venue.

Perfumers, distributors, buyers, retailers, public relations and marketing reps, press, bloggers, and many others attended to discover the creations of over 75 exhibitors. The Indie Fragrance Foundation Awards (By Killian Amber Oud wins!), a daily perfume workshop, and a niche fragrance expert panel discussion rounded out the program.

While we blissfully sort through our brimming bags of fragrance samples, here’s a little taste of Elements…
