One of the greatest perfumers in the world, a Master Perfumer. Jean-Claude Ellena.
Through his work, he’s been a part of my life for years now! On my skin. Not surprising when you think about all the perfumes he signs! I also love him maybe because I’m sentimental about his path in perfumery, maybe because times are a-changing. His way is the “old French school”, the classical way.
Shall there be stories like his in the future?
Stazione Leopolda shall soon open its doors for the 17th edition of Pitti Fragranze, 13-15th September 2019!
I had a chance to take a quick sniff of “the new one”, a perfume preview version sprayed quickly on my neck while I was attending an Unum event held in Milano, during Esxence 2018. There was something strange about it, even at a quick sniff…it caught my attention right there and then. It was all about but_not_today.
PITTI FRAGRANZE 2018, Florence– Adventures of a Curious Nose Report, Part II
The Pitti Fragranze 2018 fair is truly worth visiting: well organized, with an excellent portfolio, stimulating, a perfect place to discover new trends, network, and establish new contacts. Furthermore, it is not just about events taking place at the exhibition halls of Stazione Leopolda: organizers provided a large number of unique occasions linked to olfactory culture, in the presence of creators and some in the places closed to the general public, all around the city! 48 events on 28 different locations, to be exact!
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.
