Sniffapalooza’s holiday events have become legendary, and for this year’s celebration we’ve been dreaming of an interactive experience that combines extraordinary smells, tastes, textures, creativity, learning, and stimulating conversation, joined together in perfect harmony. We have collaborated with incredible partners to bring our fantasy to reality, and it is with extreme pleasure that we invite you to Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Celebration with Molton Brown on Sunday, December 15th, from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon, at their elegant new Flagship Boutique in NYC!
Fragrance enthusiasts, press, and fans gathered at The DL on the Lower East Side to share the privilege of helping Celebrity Chef Roblé Ali select the Fragrance Recipe that will become his first perfume, CLIQUE. Roblé worked with top Firmenich perfumer, Frank Voelkl, to create the scent, and those in attendance got to choose between the top two finalists. We sampled one scent on each wrist and answered a brief questionnaire immediately after application for our initial impressions, and then an hour later to evaluate the drydown. Each scent contained notes from Roblé’s favorite recipes, including a citrus cocktail and his famous French Toast Crunch.
Cinquieme Sens, the acclaimed perfumery school from France, has teamed with Pratt Institute and they have created a very special evening for Sniffapalooza members to learn about the Cinquieme Sens Certificate Program in Perfumery on Thursday, December 12 from 6:00-8:00 pm!
From our friends at Roja Parfums:
Top: Bergamot, Green Amber, Pink Pepper
Middle: Iris Absolute, Jasmine Sambac, Hedione, Paradisone
Bottom: Leather, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Benzoin
Impressions: Bright top notes quickly give way to a paper-dry iris almost as soon as the spray hits the skin. When Iris Prima further settles, the jasmine and vanilla dance around the leather, while hedione and paradisone help maintain a certain lightness. Grounded by sandalwood and vetiver in the final drydown, Iris Prima leaves a most enjoyable scent that stays fairly close to the skin. It’s reminiscent of the warmth of a favorite perfume left behind on the cuff of a butter-soft leather jacket.
Thanks to Victoria & Celene of Penhaligon's for Iris Prima
