I am on my way to Milan to attend Esxence 2014 and Colognoisseur will be covering it from top to bottom. I will be posting a daily wrap-up of everything as I interact with many of the most prominent players in niche perfumery. Lots of new releases from old friends and the excitement of discovering something new make Esxence special.
You will find the streaming Esxence player here on Colognoisseur and it will be running daily from 5:30AM-1:30PM EST. You will see live coverage of the panels and in between interviews with the exhibitors and others.
I am particularly pleased to be interviewing Michael Edwards as we celebrate the 30th Edition of Fragances of the World.
Please check in daily from Thursday March 20-Sunday March 23 for my reports right here on Colognoisseur.
