With determination Esxence pursues the objective of giving visibility to excellence, through high level requirements based on quality and coherence, which perfectly represent the Art of Perfumery and its creativity.
In addition, it is committed to welcoming other expressive forms of quality in fields such as, Home Fragrance, which have creative and distributive affinities with Niche Signature Perfumery.
Esxence aims to become an international and solid reference point over time for all of the brands who stand out for the quality of their offerings, marketing choices, and their distinctive distribution of Niche Signature Perfumery.
The aim of Esxence is to create a meeting opportunity for the producers of Artistic Perfumery, therefore only the parent companies are authorized to exhibit.
So as to realise an exhibition which represents a gathering of the most particular offerings in the sector, also able to give opportunities to new creative realities that aspire to enter this field, very strict criteria have been defined.
The brands, whose applications for admission will be considered by the Technical Committee, must have, at least, a general profile that corresponds to the following criteria:
If the profile is consistent with the description found above, the following criteria concerning the distribution features will be taken into consideration:
The concession holders must be able to offer precise information on the history, the philosophy and the artistic qualities of the products in order to communicate these competently and correctly to the end users. Relative hard copy, digital and on line documentation must be provided to Esxence together with the samples.
In the event that the Brand has been recently introduced onto the market and/or does not yet have a consistent presence and/or has not yet defined an international distribution strategy, it will be taken into consideration exclusively as a Spotlight brand clearly highlighting its growing profile.
The organising Committee deals with the ideation, planning and realisation of Esxence, with the assistance of the organisational team.
