The program and initiatives of Esxence – The Art Perfumery Event will be even more varied and full of novelties. While waiting for the next edition to take place, on the official website and social media channels, previews, launches, curiosities, and insights will be published regularly.

“Through The Mirror” is the theme selected for the 12th edition of Esxence Milan, and explained by organizers this slogan is aiming to provide a possible answer to the question “What is perfume to you”?

Perfume is the mirror of our personality, with the ability to narrate our most deep being and our essence. Yet at the same time it also has the potential to reflect a more concealed, mysterious side of us, a side we have not yet revealed: what we are and what we yearn to be

We’ll also witness a change of location, so we’ll have to get used to MiCo, Milano Convention Centre which is located not that far away from The Mall (if you get sentimental and just need to walk by the old location).

Brands that shall gain the approval of the Technical Committee shall be placed, same as previously, in two major sections: Main Brands and Spotlights.

There’ll be new content, lectures, and workshops as well, with considerable focus on training and special projects offering innovative teaching methods –  to be held in partnership with Politecnico di Milano – Department of Design, for example. The second edition of Experience Lab – dedicated to niche and indie cosmetics goes on too! Osmotheque will be present, and Milano Fragrance Week events are bound to make you run around the whole city every day of the exhibition.

In conjunction with the event, in the spaces of MiCo, Milan Convention Centre, will be held the second edition of Experience Lab – promoted by the company Experience Me – the appointment dedicated to niche beauty and excellence.

The one most important thing that keeps me hopping around like a Duracell Bunny (besides tremendous amounts of adrenaline) is – the people of Esxence.

I can’t wait to meet my fragrant friends & brands from all over the world: this will be a grand fair, and a wonderful meeting point for us after all the turmoil we’ve all been through!
