When I first read propositions for the Parfums Dusita Poetry Contest published on Fragrantica (12th of May – 15th of June 2020) I thought I had no chance, however beautiful and inviting this idea was.  To write a haiku poem? But haiku is such a demanding form, that was my first thought.
Categories were Love and Freedom, inspired by fragrances Mélodie de L’amour and Issara. The idea was to take inspiration from perfume, to create art, and to learn more about poetry.
I don’t remember writing down words that could be regarded as verses or poetry ever since high school, and I must admit that my knowledge about haiku dates back to my school days as well. And yet, I won the 2nd prize!

Pensive, meditative, soulful, abstract, and inspiring perfumes of Pitti, plus two bonuses from Sweden: I started my Pitti Fragranze 2019 reports with Roses, moved to Scents, Tastes, and Heritage of Mediterranean, and now it’s time for my last Florence 2019 report.

This took a bit longer than usual because I’ve been busy writing a couple of reviews in the meantime, traveling a bit, procrastinating a little, handling my regular work tasks, and generally slowing down as Autumn rolls in.

PITTI FRAGRANZE, FLORENCE 14-16.09.2018. – Part I

Florence! One of the most beautiful cities in the world! Here I am again, just last Summer I was wandering around Tuscany: this time my experience of Florence is completely different, and I could return to it time after time.

Pitti time is something special. A gathering of people connected to perfumes, from all over the world. I needed some time for all the impressions to settle down, now I think I’m about to write a series of posts about Pitti Fragranze, from different aspects.
