THE ELEMENTS SHOWCASE=ART OF FRAGRANCE DESIGN AND SCENTS

SKYLIGHT WEST 36TH/10TH AVE. NYC

Words, Images: Judith Ecochard

Two people we know---clued us in about the inaugural showcase for high-end fragrances, Elements Showcase.

The nano-second we stepped off the elevator to the 6th floor, huge loft-like space---we knew immediately that not only have we never been to a better smelling trade show---but also that the design of the space and the products themselves...may never get better than this anywhere else.













With the glorious event thought out by and meticulously crafted by Reddy Made Designs our spirits soared...it was so uplifting---esp. after coming off the freezing drab streets, a testament to what can be done with a spot-on vision of how humans react to their environment.

AND even before we we sniffed a droplet---we marveled at the incredible packing of the scents both for home and personal use---and candles too.

We arrived with about ten minutes left (ugh) but we managed to preview a new perfume, SUMMERSCENT (the Fragrance of a Dream)---that reminded us of the refreshing aromas of wild flowers (Italian Jasmine), a newly cut lawn, and the clarity of the air after a summery rain as top notes---plus the heady complex blend of mandarin orange, and musk.
