Sniffapalooza Presents Voluptuary: An Evening of Sensual Pairings, Monday, February 6 in NYC! 

Sniffapalooza celebrates perfumery as an art, and we love to create unique experiential events where we can explore the olfactive universe with kindred spirits, combining fragrance with other sensorial arts. It is with this inspiration in mind that we have developed Sniffapalooza Presents Voluptuary: An Evening of Sensual Pairings, to take place at On Stellar Rays Gallery, on Monday, February 6, in New York City!

We invite you to share this interactive multi-sensory journey, an evening of sensual delights... fragrant, culinary, artistic and cinematic pairings... created for the voluptuary in us all! We have partnered with incredible artists for a meeting of the minds that goes way beyond the top notes, and delves deep into our emotions.

This evening is the brainchild of Stephen Dirkes... Perfumer, filmmaker, multi-media artist, and the founder of Euphorium Brooklyn, the extraordinary, innovative niche perfume brand. To celebrate his latest fragrance creation, the Voluptuary Trio Set,Dirkes has collaborated with Chef Tessa Liebman and Photographer Tal Shpantzer to reinterpret and pair the fragrances in edible and visual format.  

The Voluptuary fragrances -  Suedois, Petales and Chocolatl -  were designed with a focus on sensual, decadent and romantic aspects. The intricately layered relationship of fragrance, flavor and imagery in the stories behind the collection come together to find perfect expression in this event.   

Chef Tessa Liebman's creation, the elegant Pavlova pastry,expands and informs the fragrant palette as decadent, sweet treats. The fragrance Petales was inspired by Tal Shpantzer's series of photographic portraits, The Petal Series, with Dirkes bringing the series to life as a perfume. The Petal Series will be on view at the event.  

There will be ample time to discover the fragrances in the Voluptuary Set, taste the Pavlova pastries, experience the photographic imagery, and to chat one-on-one with Stephen, Tessa and Tal. The evening also offers a special sneak peek screening of Voluptuary #535, the short film created by Dirkes in collaboration with Shpantzer which is an Official Selection World Premier at La Joola International Fashion Film Festival 2017.

Due to the intimate and interactive nature of this phenomenal event, spaces at Sniffapalooza Presents Voluptuary: An Evening of Sensual Pairings are very limited. The registration fee is $50, and includes the multi-media presentations, dining on delectable Pavlovas and fine wines, sampling the Euphorium Brooklyn Voluptuary Set, and surprises!
