Cinquieme Sens, the acclaimed perfumery school from France, has teamed with Pratt Institute and they have created a very special evening for Sniffapalooza members to learn about the Cinquieme Sens Certificate Program in Perfumery on Thursday, December 12 from 6:00-8:00 pm!
From our friends at Roja Parfums:
Top: Bergamot, Green Amber, Pink Pepper
Middle: Iris Absolute, Jasmine Sambac, Hedione, Paradisone
Bottom: Leather, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Benzoin
Impressions: Bright top notes quickly give way to a paper-dry iris almost as soon as the spray hits the skin. When Iris Prima further settles, the jasmine and vanilla dance around the leather, while hedione and paradisone help maintain a certain lightness. Grounded by sandalwood and vetiver in the final drydown, Iris Prima leaves a most enjoyable scent that stays fairly close to the skin. It’s reminiscent of the warmth of a favorite perfume left behind on the cuff of a butter-soft leather jacket.
Thanks to Victoria & Celene of Penhaligon's for Iris Prima
From our friends at Twisted Lily:
At the Sniffapalooza Fall Ball, over 60 Sniffa’s from around the world ventured to Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood via luxury coach, cab and subway to discover Twisted Lily Fragrance Boutique & Apothecary. They were greeted by co-owners Eric Weiser and Stamatis Birsimijoglou and invited to sniff (from 30 carefully curated brands of artisan, hard-to-find fragrance, home fragrance, beauty), eat (abundant nibbles from a neighborhood bistro), and drink (Twisted Lily’s Mixologist made a great Pear + Olive Martini, inspired by the Slumberhouse fragrance!)
They also had a chance to win a Twisted Lily Basket worth over $1,000, including treasures from Tommi Sooni, Slumberhouse, L’Artisan Parfumeur and Belle Fleur. And the winner is….Sandy Braddy Hall!
Here’s what’s in the basket:
