Since the very first post published here (29.08.2016), The Plum Girl Perfume Site celebrates perfume as an art form! Unique and in-depth reviews, news from the Industry, reports from Esxence Milan, Pitti Fragranze, travelogues with information about perfume shops, interviews, and all the other content regarding niche/artisan perfume and people of perfume – researched, written, edited, and shared to readers of this site over the past six years.
And yes – I’m still madly in love with perfume!
The Pitti Fragranze 2021 fair (I much rather call it an exhibition) of artistic perfumery – was intense. Emotionally intense. The return of this live exhibition, after two years, was primarily a rendezvous of – wonderful people of perfume! To see people again, to interact live, to smile together, to share! Priceless.
A chemist, an artist, a Master perfumer: Ralf Schwieger. Blending finely contrasts of precise and measurable -chemistry, and somewhat messy and unpredictable – art, expressing himself in a unique, his way, making perfumes with a personality.
An Original. Chiseling raw materials into perfumes that are works of art, with precision and grace: the sculptor of scents.
Despite the current Covid 19 situation, travel restrictions, and slightly rising numbers, Pitti Fragranze 2021 managed to set protocols to ensure the exhibition at Station Leopolda was held in safety and tranquility. Exactly two years after the last Fragranze event, the 19th edition DID take place 17-19 September, in Florence – always The Most Beautiful.
