Il Profumo, Illustrated – Massimo‘s name has already become synonymous with perfume illustrations: you might have seen his work for perfume brands or noticed his drawings of dainty Lilly of The Valley flowers, roses, or blooming tuberoses. He has successfully combined two of his passions, two art forms, one enhancing the other and vice versa.
The new cover for The Plum Girl website is also created by Massimo Alfaioli, a change made to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the blog!
He kindly accepted my invitation to answer some questions about his work and passions, and I’m very happy to bring you this interview!
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.
There were moments at Esxence 2019 when I felt like a gladiator in an arena, roaming around crowded floors of The Mall, armed with love and determination, in search of perfumes that might disarm me with their artistic creativity and originality, touch me soul-deep tapping into something unconscious, spiritual, profound, and cause waves of emotions…well, some certainly did.
