Wall Street saw an olfactory uptick last weekend when 75 fragrance enthusiasts gathered at The Trump Building’s Duane Reade Training Center for a very special Sniffapalooza Demeter Fragrance Library Personal Blending Master Class.
Unusually balmy mid-December weather made it the perfect Sunday afternoon to enjoy Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Fete! We strolled up Madison Avenue, discovering lovely new scents along the way.
Our first top was Lladró, a stunning gallery of finely detailed porcelain sculptures founded in Valencia, Spain. After sharing the company’s history and creation process, Cristina Egido introduced us to Lladró’s lovely new line of candles with Mediterranean-inspired scents. We sipped champagne and indulged in fresh fruits and Neuhaus chocolates, as we made our gift choices with a special Sniffapalooza discount and extra treats.
We continued along to Annick Goutal, where Francoise Alessi welcomed us to their newest boutique with a very special pairing of cocktails inspired by fragrance. After a brief overview of the brand history, we sampled the libations as we sniffed our scent strips. Sweet cookie treats were also served, making for a true multi-sensory experience. We enjoyed gift bags, discounts, and special treats with our Annick Goutal gift purchases.
Like all good things, #SniffaFallBall2015 has come to an end. As we exhale we’re left with lingering memories of our incredible weekend, including a treasure trove of newly discovered fragrances, freshly minted friends, and a sizable slew of scent samples!
Here’s a photo recap of our adventures! Stay tuned for our fabulous Sniffapalooza Lunch Loot Giveaway!
We had an amazing time at Cosmoprof NA in Las Vegas last week and can’t believe how quickly it all flew by! We met lots of wonderful people from all around the world – our booth was right smack in the middle of Beauty Avenue and hard to miss! – and whether they were involved in nailcare, haircare, skincare, or cosmetics, so many were interested in niche fragrance!
We’re getting excited for Cosmoprof North America, the largest international business-to-business beauty event in the Americas, which is happening next month in Las Vegas. Sniffapalooza is honored to have been chosen to curate Discover Scent, an exclusive showcase for new and innovative fragrance products.
