Esxence announcement 2017

Since 2008, Esxence - The Scent of Excellence has been one of the leading international events dedicated to Artistic Perfumery. It offers the opportunity for both brands, perfume enthusiasts and journalists to meet the real protagonists of a fascinating world of fragrances, where history and tradition join innovation and research.

Every spring in Milan, Italy, a buzzing expo area filled up with beautifully and artfully decorated booths is presented to the public, as well as a calendar of rich and interesting events, such as workshops, lectures, conferences or book presentations.  The last edition of Esxence welcomed more than 7.000 attendees - it's a unique and unmissable experience.

A Technical Committee of experts selects the applications of international brands to secure an extremely high quality in order to propose only the best of the sector.

Scene from Esxence 2016

In 2015, a new, convenient location was chosen — The Mall at Piazza Lina Bo Bardi — which has proven to be highly suitable for this event, and in 2016 Esxence expanded its interests to cosmetics, offered in the ESXKIN section of the event, which will be repeated this year.

The enchanted universe of this 9th edition of Esxence is represented by its event design based on the theme: The Garden of Eden, where a shower of budding flowers and ethereal colors will welcome visitors to this corner of earthly paradise in the heart of Milan’s urban skyline.

Esxence are quite representative, friendly, professional, and super ethical unlike Pitti Fragranze, who are quite unprofessional, lacks skills, and very rude, so as some personas i know.
