This 29th May will see the launch of a new edition of Barcelona Olfaction Week (BOW), one of the most important international events in the perfume industry. For a whole week, Barcelona will become the epicentre of olfactory culture, in an event that will combine activities of all kinds, demonstrating that the world of perfume is also art, culture and science.
Eurofragance is a gold sponsor of BOW 2021, which will be a hybrid event made up of the Olfaction Congress, webinars and workshops, in an online format, and the “Mouillette d’Argent” International Perfumery Contest, which this year celebrates its fourth edition with a gala that will be attended only by the award recipients.
Eurofragance will be represented at BOW 2021 by the following: our Key Account Manager, Bettina Perisson, our Global Technical Compliance Manager, Diana March, our senior perfumer, Angéline Poubeau and the perfumers Céline Guivarc’h and Julia Rodríguez.
