The experience of the perfumes of Esxence 2018

The first two days of Esxence have flown. In The Mall area, venue dedicated to the exhibition, you can breathe not only perfumes, but pure energy too. Coming out of the last workshop, I stopped to look at the booths: a day at the show could be tiring, but I saw happy faces, end-of-the-day toasts and family photos. The feeling of being in a place with a soul. As if everyone were aware of the beauty of what they do. Esxence is art, science and culture and the networks of these hours seem to be drawn thinking to something more fascinating than profits. “Work should be a great joy” Adriano Olivetti said in one of his revolutionary speeches. In these hours I seemed to breathe this joy.
