While I’m still waiting for the official press release with numbers and stats, L’Equipe International has just posted that the 13th edition of Esxence Milan 2023 broke all the records: 300+ perfume brands were exhibiting, and more than 12.600 visitors attended the Fair in four days (Thursday and Friday are for professionals only, Saturday and Sunday are open for the general public).
So many brands, new perfume releases, and events! Some very special to me, in addition to my Esxence Milan 2023 Report Part I, so let’s move on along the busy, crowded, and heavily scented corridors:
Sogni, a new fragrance by Meo Fusciuni was presented during Esxence Milan 2023, and their stand was simply beautiful. Perfume, art, and poetry meet again in this fragrant story set in a Japanese context – with pine needles in mist, the delicate scent of softwood, small bowls of rice, and just a breath of incense coming from somewhere far away. It’s touchingly delicate, dreamy, and unique.
I received the sample of Sogni before the Fair, and I will be reviewing it sometime soon – it’s a beauty. Again, because the lovely Encore du Temps (created by Giuseppe Imprezzabile) is the Art and Olfaction Awards finalist! So very special, poetical, and breathtaking!
I managed to hug Giuseppe and say hello, and I completely forgot to take photos, so this one I borrowed from the brand:
Oh, Filippo! So special. Not only did he present a new fragrance in his delire de voyage collection – HAEC DIES, AND a new fragrance in the extrait de musique collection – Trompette 8, but he also played the organ at Chiesa di San Carlo al Lazzaretto, and opened a store container_zerouno in Via della Moscova 10 in Milan! Next time you’re in Milan, this is the address to go to!
Filippo Sorcinelli’s stand was one of the busiest at Esxence Milan 2023, but he and his team managed to kindly attend to everyone, as always. I did take these two samples with me, so you’ll hear from me more about them.
I hope he’ll forgive me for having to run, but I’m very grateful that he did let me smell some of his upcoming releases.
