Unscent @ Pitti Fragranze
“At sea you can find everything, according to the spirit that guides your search.”
UNSCENT and Roads: Intertrade Group invents a new way of communicating contemporary art perfumery
The closure of the eleventh Pitti Fragranze (13-15 September 2013) also marks the closure of the Unscent at Pitti Fragranze experience, brought to Florence after its first appearance in Milan.
The project devised by Celso Fadelli, with the artistic direction of Cristiano Seganfreddo, has succeeded in creating a thrilling new concept inside the Stazione Leopolda. A marine backdrop populated with large medusas, where the dense sculptural light has given a liquidity and depth to the visions of the best talents in international perfumery.
The Unscent vision was accompanied by the world preview of Roads, a new lifestyle brand created by Danielle Ryan. The combination of a surprising installation, which brought a real lorry in among the columns of Stazione Leopolda, and the extremely interesting personality of the brand’s founder, aroused great excitement and a growing interest among the international press and buyers, as well as beginning to spread the message of Roads throughout the world.
