    Default Pitti fragranze 2013

    Hi,
    this year I was planning to go to Florence on Sept. 15th to the "Pitti Fragranze" event, being my first time I would like to something about it by other Basenoters who attended it before, here goes my questions list

    - Should I get there early in the morning?
    - Should I book any ticket, or should I just queue? (on the official website there's a lack of infos about this issue)

    - Is it possible to buy fragrances?
    - Is it possible to buy/get free samples?

    that's it!
    Now, hoping for the "kindness of strangers"!
    (thanks in advance, of course,to all those who will answer)

    I've been there last year. Here are some (hopefully) helpful answers...

    If you work in the fragrance industry or If you're a journalist you can enter whenever you want (Friday, Saturday or Sunday). Otherwise, the fair opens to the public only on Saturday. My suggestion is to go early in the morning (not later than 10am) because it gets very crowded in the afternoon. You can get your ticket directly at the fair, no big queues...No possibility to buy fragrances, samples are given mainly to professionals and retailers unless you're very persuasive

    That said, all the main perfumers are present and very keen to show anybody their newer creations and comment/discuss them with people...

    Thank you very much!
    It seems I'll need set my "persuasiveness factor" to "mode: ON" !
    Anyway, it shoul be very funny...I heard that Maria Candida Gentile will premiere 4 or 5 new creations, and Tauer should preset its "Loretta" fragrance as well, I'm so curious about these!
    Very helpful, as always

    Yes. If memory serves me well, Maria Candida Gentile should introduce her "extraits", one of them being a vetiver. New fragrances by Histoires De Parfums, O'Driù, Vero Profumo, Andrea Maack, MFK and ELDO as well....

    Advance reviews of Maria's four new fragrances (due for release around mid-September) have now been published on my blog.
