Let's talk about artistic scents


"Hot as cinnamon, green as cardamom. Spices help us to turn winter chills into chills of … pleasure".
This is the first of a cycle of meetings I organized in Genoa with the Perfumery store Caleri on artistic perfumery. Thursday we’ll start talking about spices: how raw materials are extracted from plants, we’ll smell some essential oils to learn to distinguish the notes and then we’ll trace them out in niche perfumes.


The meeting will last a couple of hours. Three, counting the initial and final greetings and tea with biscuits (from 17 to 20). Caleri provides the chance to play with scents of all the brands they carry (The Different Company, Nez à Nez, Villoresi, L'Artisan Parfumeur, Etat Libre d'Orange, Mona di Orio, Bond N.9, Humiecki &Graef, Dyptique, Olivier Durbano, Montale, BOIS 1920, Creed, Odori, just to name a few), and I’ll play as a guide to the meeting.
If you wish to participate you'll be very welcome, but since space is not huge, better to confirm your presence with a phone call (010 581312). See you there!
