What more perfect way to spend the day after a snowstorm than being surrounded by amazing smells, exquisitely-packaged luxury bath and body products, scrumptious baked delicacies, bubbly champagne, exotic Kusmi Tea and lively conversation?
Last Sunday, fragrance enthusiasts gathered for Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Fete with Molton Brown at the sparkling new flagship store on Madison Avenue near 59th St. The event celebrated the unveiling of the new shop, and also offered a Master Class look into the history and legacy of this cult-favorite brand which just celebrated its 40th anniversary!

Sniffapalooza’s fragrance lovers showed their true passion when they came out on a frigid evening for a Master Class event with perfumery school Cinquieme Sens at Pratt Institute. Sniffapalooza and Cinquieme Sens joined forces to announce two new certificate programs: The Technique and Language of Perfumery and The Fragrance Sales Program.
Sniffapalooza’s holiday events have become legendary, and for this year’s celebration we’ve been dreaming of an interactive experience that combines extraordinary smells, tastes, textures, creativity, learning, and stimulating conversation, joined together in perfect harmony. We have collaborated with incredible partners to bring our fantasy to reality, and it is with extreme pleasure that we invite you to Sniffapalooza’s Holiday Celebration with Molton Brown on Sunday, December 15th, from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon, at their elegant new Flagship Boutique in NYC!
Fragrance enthusiasts, press, and fans gathered at The DL on the Lower East Side to share the privilege of helping Celebrity Chef Roblé Ali select the Fragrance Recipe that will become his first perfume, CLIQUE. Roblé worked with top Firmenich perfumer, Frank Voelkl, to create the scent, and those in attendance got to choose between the top two finalists. We sampled one scent on each wrist and answered a brief questionnaire immediately after application for our initial impressions, and then an hour later to evaluate the drydown. Each scent contained notes from Roblé’s favorite recipes, including a citrus cocktail and his famous French Toast Crunch.
Cinquieme Sens, the acclaimed perfumery school from France, has teamed with Pratt Institute and they have created a very special evening for Sniffapalooza members to learn about the Cinquieme Sens Certificate Program in Perfumery on Thursday, December 12 from 6:00-8:00 pm!
