In a symbolic move to bring the cause of fragrance closer to the attention of the seat of power of the nation, the International Fragrance Association, North America (IFRA NA) will be hosting a special event on Capitol Hill tomorrow night on November 13, 2013 entitled Symphony of Senses...
Three perfumers, Calice Becker, Christopher Diienno, and Heather Sims will present their olfactory creations inspired by music.
Music is one of the best analogies for perfumery where the terminology itself reflects this intimate link between the two worlds with words like "notes" and "accords", "top" and "base", "opening" and "harmony."
Unsurprisingly for those who are familiar with the style of Calice Becker, the nose behind Dior J'Adore and so many other blockbusters, she is taking on classical music as her source of inspiration with L'Elisir D'Amore by Donizetti and "Una Furtiva Lagrima" in particular.
Christopher Diienno "used Depeche Mode, New Order and The Cure as the inspiration to create a scent representing 1980’s rock."
Finally, "perfumer Heather Sims has created a scent to correspond with Justin Timberlake’s recent Suit and Tie album," with an inspirational quote for her project, "...the place between black and white. That's the place where life happens"
Jennifer Abril, President, International Fragrance Association North America is hosting the event.
The Scented Salamander will let you know more this rapprochement not only between music and perfume, but perfume and politics, soon.
