WFFC Chicago The Art of Creation

By: Marissa Piazza (H.B. Taylor Co.)

On Thursday, August 25th, 2016, WFFC Chicago hosted a night to remember at Terzo Piano at the Art Institute of Chicago. A total of 47 attendees, including the WFFC Chicago Board enjoyed cocktails from 5:30-6pm and a private museum tour from 6-7pm. The tour lecturers led us throughout the museum wings as we discovered artistic works from Renaissance to Impressionism and Modernism, and spoke to the creation and story behind each piece.

Dinner and personalized perfume and flavor creation discussions followed from 7-9pm, presented by Perfumer, Renata Girnius (Orchidia Fragrances) and Flavorist, Marissa Piazza (H.B. Taylor Co.) The event was crafted and organized by Board Member, Marissa Piazza with the help of Board President, Dafne Diez De Medina and Board Member Karen Van Kampen.

The WFFC Chicago Board was delighted to receive positive feedback from the attendees as the night came to an end. One perfumer even mentioned that this was her favorite event thus far that WFFC Chicago has held! Our next WFFC Chicago event will be held at Cafe La Cave in Rosemont on November 8th (evening before Chicago IFT Suppliers’ Night.)
