From our friends, Sarah Horowitz and Mary Orlin:
Presenting The Essence of Fragrance – a Perfume and Wine Aroma Sensory Workshop. Join us for this exploration of the aromatic experience of wine and perfume, led by Master Perfumer Sarah Horowitz and Sommelier and Journalist Mary Orlin.
During our workshop Chief Perfumer Sarah Horowitz-Thran will educate participants on the history of fragrance and how our sense of smell works before delving into the principals of building a scent.
Sommelier and fragrance and wine writer for The Huffington Post Mary Orlin will speak to the similarities in the language of wine and perfumery. Our guest vintner is Sonja Magdevski of Casa Dumetz Wines, and we will pair Casa Dumetz wines with perfume oil notes curated by Sarah Horowitz.
In this master class we take participants on a journey into the intersection of the arts of perfume and wine and how and why they are similar and complimentary to each other. We’ll explore pulling out common fragrant notes in each.
Come for an afternoon of fragrance, wine and nibbles. Space is extremely limited so sign up now!
From our friends at the House of Cherry Bomb, Maria and Alexis:
ART OF PERFUME: GOD SAVE THE QUEEN-A RIOT OF PUNK PERFUME
Saturday June 8th 2:00-5:00pm
Join House of Cherry Bomb perfumers as we create and deconstruct scent
while listening to the anarchistic cries of punk musicians in God Save the
Queen-A Riot of Punk Perfume class. Notes such as clove cigarette, gasoline
and jellybean, challenge our perception of olfactory beauty; just as wailing
guitars and wailing voices challenged pop music culture through microphones
buzzing with noise, and mosh pit -jumping crowds clad in the deconstructed
threads of Vivienne Westwood and the like. We will explore the work of punk
musicians, designers and artists as we challenge conventional fragrance to
the sounds of the Sex Pistols, The Dammed, Buzzcocks and NY Dolls.
Class fee-$75. Material fee: $25.
