Olfactive experiences and nice encounters featured in my day at Esxence, event focused on  artistic perfumery and its culture which was held in Milan at the Triennale Design Museum. Dhaer Bin Dhaer, nice and fun Dubai sultan who created the scent Tola, has been one of the first people I met. The scents he made were showcased along with many objects as a weird mask and the scarves that emphasized on their oriental charm and warm suggestions reminding the desert and made me think about the “Sheltering sky”, celebrated movie by Bernardo Bertolucci (and more specifically about a scene featuring John Malkovich and Amina Annabi and its moving soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto). The packaging of perfumes is very catchy, including also a dropper, successful way to depict a gesture and a kind of fetishism connected to the scent which makes concrete also a smart marketing choice.

A playful, ironic and provocative, pop mood, connected to the olfactive libertinage shines in Etat Libre D’ Orange, French brand created by the brilliant Etienne De Swardt, including unusual fragrances as “Don’t get me wrong baby I don’t swallow”, “Charogne”(a scent I experienced a long ago, for a long time), “Secretions magnifiques”, the scent reinterpreting the scent of sperm, created by one of my favorite noses, Antoine Lie(who also made “Sulphur” by Nu-be), “Archives 69”, inspired by “Drencula”, erotic novel on vampires by Boris Vian, the first trans-scent “Afternoon of a faun”, created by the eclectic artist and beloved friend Justin Vivian Bond and last but not the least “Cologne”, a nice scent. This new perfume, which will be released on May, represents something being unexpected, considering the outrageous attitude of brand. Etienne told me “it was a way to break the rules and sometimes we break our own rules”. After the decadence now it shines the nice and its freshness embodied in this scent.

Nevertheless the freshness is the core of Eau d’ Italie,  Positano brand, producing a series of fragrances, created by Sebastian Alvarez Mureno, evoking the freshness of sea and Mediterranean visions. The combinations giving rise to its alchemies are many, some are enriched also of spicy, woody notes or red fruits as “Graine de Joie”, the new fragrance, but all the ones have in common the freshness. A refined freshness which makes this scent a passé-partout, appreciated by people who don’t like aggressive and intense smells, being all of these scents extremely delicate.

It was fun to see again the Australian milliner Naomi Goodsir featuring in Exsence as brand of fragrances as the caressing “Cuir Velours”, joining tobacco, rum, cistus labdanum, incense and fleur d’ immortelle and “Or dù Serail” which embodies tobacco along with ambery, woody and musky notes.

Esperienze olfattive e simpatici incontri sono stati i protagonisti della mia giornata a Esxence, evento dedicato alla profumeria artistica, alla sua cultura che si è tenuto a Milano presso il Museo del Design della Triennale. Dhaer Bin Dhaer, il simpatico e buffo sultano di Dubai che ha creato il profumo Tola, è stato una delle prime persone che ho conosciuto. I suoi profumi erano esposti insieme a diversi oggetti quali una insolita maschera ed i foulard che enfatizzavano il loro fascino orientale e calde suggestioni che ricordavano il deserto e mi hanno fatto pensare a “Il tè nel deserto”, celebre film di Bernardo Bertolucci (più specificamente a una scena del film con John Malkovich e Amina Annabi ed anche alla struggente colonna sonora di Ryuichi Sakamoto). Il packaging dei profumi è molto accattivante, comprensivo anche di un contagocce, felice modo di ritrarre un gesto e una sorta di feticismo legato al profumo che concretizza anche una intelligente scelta di marketing.

 Un giocoso, ironico e provocante mood pop, legato al libertinaggio olfattivo splende in Etat Libre D’ Orange, brand francese creato dal brillante Etienne De Swardt che comprende insolite fragranze come “Don’t get me wrong baby I don’t swallow”, “Charogne”(profumo da me sperimentato tanto tempo fa, per lungo tempo), “Secretions magnifiques”, fragranza che reinterpreta l’ odore di sperma, creata da uno dei miei nasi preferiti, Antoine Lie (che ha anche realizzato “Zolfo”e altre fragranze di Nu-be), “Archives 69”, che si ispira a “Drencula”, racconto erotico sui vampiri di Boris Vian, il primo profumo trans “Afternoon of a faun”, creato dall’ eclettico artista e amico molto caro Justin Vivian Bond ed ultimo ma non meno importante “Cologne”, una fragranza carina. Questo nuovo profumo, che sarà distribuito a maggio, rappresenta qualcosa di inaspettato, considerando l’ attitudine provocatoria del marchio. Etienne mi diceva che: “era un modo per rompere le regole e talvolta abbattere le nostre stesse regole”. Dopo la decadenza adesso splende il carino e la sua freschezza, racchiusa in questo profumo.

Ciònondimeno la freschezza è il cuore di Eau d’ Italie, brand di Positano, che produce una serie di fragranze create da Sebastian Alvarez Mureno che evocano il mare e visioni mediterranee. Le combinazioni che danno vita alle sue alchimie sono varie, alcune arricchite da note speziate, verdi o frutti rossi come “Graine de Joie”, la nuova fragranza, ma tutte hanno in comune la freschezza. Una raffinata freschezza che rende questi profumi un passé-partout, apprezzati da persone che non gradiscono odori aggressivi e intensi, essendo queste fragranze oltremodo delicate.

É stato divertente rivedere la designer di cappelli Naomi Goodsir protagonista di Exsence nelle vesti di brand di profumi quali il carezzevole “Cuir Velours”, che unisce tabacco, rum, ciste labdano, incenso e fiori di luce e “Or dù Serail” che racchiude in sé tabacco unitamente a note ambrate, verdi e muschiate.
