At Floralia Perfume Boutique we’re hosting a Scent & Wine pairing evening in collaboration with Olivia da Costa, brand founder of niche British perfume house, Olfactive O, and a Buckinghamshire business BeerGinVino owned by Kevin & Petra Durrant who specialise in independent producers of crafted beer, wines and gins. BeerGinVino are not just an online specialist retailer but also own The Hatchery, their shop and tasting venue located on Bradmoor Farm in Buckinghamshire.
Slightly baffled? Well, brand founder Olivia da Costa is a firm believer that fragrances should be tailored to our personalities (see Brand spotlight post dated August 26t). Our choice of fragrance is often determined by our mood, the moment or how we want to feel…as is our choice of drinks – whether a glass of crisp Sauvignon paired with freshly grilled seafood or a soothing Rioja to go with a winter warmer, why not pair a scent not just to our personalities but to a wine? Perfume-making is a complex process where notes are intricately measured and mixed, left to mature and develop and tested for perfection…as is the complex process of wine-making, both of which deserve the attention and love it takes to create them.
Our scent-pairing session will be an intimate event taking place on Thursday 13th October at Floralia perfume boutique, from 5.30 – 7pm. Guests will learn about the process and personalities behind the six fragrances of the sublime Olfactive O perfume selection, with an introduction to their raw ingredients and small insight into the world of perfume-making. Each fragrance is then matched to an expertly selected wine by Kevin, BeerGinVino wine expert and retailer.
The event will be held for up to 15 people. Tickets are £20 each, all guests will receive a 2ml sample of their chosen scent personality. Any purchases made on the evening will receive a 20% discount or alternatively a 10% discount code to use within 3 months.
Please contact email@example.com should you wish to receive an invite.
