Well, we’re still floating down from the fragrant clouds that wafted over NYC this past weekend! Over one hundred scent saveurs from around the world all came together for three glorious days devoted to the passion for perfume! We sampled all the new Spring offerings (and even had a few sneak previews,) met perfumers and other fragrance industry insiders, enjoyed delicious luncheons and cocktail parties, made new friends, reconnected with old ones, and had as much fun as we could cram into the weekend! While we spend the coming week sifting through all of our scent samples, we’re popping in to share some photo highlights of Spring Fling with you! And check back for our Sniffapalooza Lunch Loot Gift Bag Giveaway – coming soon!
Last night the pouring rain ceased and the clouds parted revealing a splash of sunshine and blue skies just in time for the start of the Second Annual Perfumed Plume Awards. Hosted by Founders Mary Ellen Lapsansky and Lyn Leigh, this gathering of fragrance industry illuminati and scent wordsmiths took place at the elegant and inspiring Society of Illustrators in NYC. We were honored and privileged to be members of the Judging Panel. Here’s a list of the 2017 winners and links to their award-winning entries:
Just how special is Byredo? Special enough for forty fragrance enthusiasts to rise early last Sunday morning and head over to the Soho boutique. We enjoyed the scents, sights, and camaraderie, while grazing on delicious Dean & Deluca breakfast pastries and mimosa’s. Flagship Director, Carissa Barrett, treated us to a Byredo Master Class, offering an in-depth look at this modern luxury house.
