The universe of perfumes: it’s all about the feelings they evoke, the memories they recall, the energy they convey, the sensuality they awaken and the resoluteness they assert. For millennia, perfume has been one of the most coveted and sophisticated products of human culture, as archeologists and scholars know well enough. Each one of us can understand the allure when a particular fragrance wafts before us, striking our nostrils before hitting our central nervous system. As Baudelaire wrote in his poem, “Perfumes and sounds and colors correspond / Some scents are cool as children’s flesh is cool / Sweet as are oboes, green as meadowlands…” Everything is reflected in a fragrance.
This subtly charming world is being dedicated three inebriating and intense days: Fragranze, the international, olfactory exposition, now in its 22nd edition, that invites visitors to immerse themselves in creations by the best artisan perfumers.
