Ponneri

We know Spring is here in New York City because it’s Sniffapalooza Spring Fling 2018! The TWENTY SEVENTH edition of this spectacular scent event took over Manhattan for a non-stop fragrant weekend and special presentation of UME Eau de Parfum from Friday, April 27th to Sunday, April 29th.

Thursday night at MAISON10 and Friday night at Byredo kicked the weekend off with cocktail parties, perfumer presentations, & launches. Saturday was the first full day of events and Sunday also started bright and early at MALIN + GOETZ and continued straight through with stops at; ATELIER COLOGNE, LE LABO, CIRE TRUDON, LA MELA, NATURA BRASIL, OLFACTORY NYC, & PERFUMARIĒ to tea sampling at Herny & Sons’s Fine Teas to end the day at 6PM.

Sunday walking tour

This map of Sunday’s walking tour shows you just a fraction of the weekend’s travels.

Sunday alone offered such great company for us to join. We were wonderfully received at the La Mela luncheon in Little Italy for our presentation of UME Eau de Parfum, our latest fragrance and grateful for all of the feedback.

Thanks to Talfoto.com we were able offer beautiful floral note cards with our UME sample sets to Sunday’s guests.

Organized by the intrepid Sniffapalooza team of Karen Dubin (pictured) & Karen Adams, MC David Ecker also presented lots of great affordable fragrance ideas from Banana Republic and Christian Siriano.

Spotting the familiar and oh-so-friendly faces of Cafleurebon correspondent, Hernando Patrick Courtright, Elizabeth Rose of Ave Parfum, & Karen Adams of Sniffapalooza at La Mela. Honored to have AVE PARFUM help us launch UME online as well.

Writer, Jane Bernard of Curious Happening gave an introduction to the core principles of her philosophy of Sensual Thinking and Perfumer, Irina Adams of Phoenix Botanicals presented her new Lotus Pollinator fragrance.

Everyone enjoyed the five courses of eating, drinking, and making fragrant merry! The Sniffapalooza community is so devoted, there were many familiar faces and conversations that were picked right up from the last event.
