A huge exhibition hall, 280 exhibitors, from well-known old traditional brands of several centuries to the sweet newborn pups, from classically exclusive fragrances to totally extravagant ideas, Europe, Africa, Orient and the Far East, natural and synthetic, Osmothèque, Italian Perfumery Institute, Art & Olfaction Awards, 3 conference halls, 4 days and me.
Tired, exhausted, and happy.
Muscle fever in my legs, a nose full of smells, and head like a balloon.
So how was Esxence 2023? Great.
I haven’t quite managed to wade through all the samples and notes yet, so just a little peek for now.
