MOUILLETTE D'ARGENT
VI INTERNATIONAL PERFUMERY CONTEST

*

The Bergamot → the olfactory note at the 2023 edition

Mouillette d’Argent is a contest created for perfumers from all around the world that would like to show their creative capacity. The contest is part of the fair “Pairing of the Senses” (Maridatge dels Sentits) in Teià, Barcelona, Spain. Any perfumer may submit his/her scents to the contest.

The objectives of the
contest are:

* Giving visibility to the profession of perfumers.

* Stating that perfumery is the art form associated with the sense of smell.

* Allowing perfumers to express their creative talent.

This year, we will ask the 12 finalists to tell us the story behind their perfume so the public and the jury can understand the reasons behind each proposal.

As in previous years, the 12 finalist perfumes will be available in perfumeries around the country and in the Unió exhibition centre in Teia.

So, please save the date to visit Teia and attend the Competition’s awards ceremony. You will be able to enjoy first hand the Pairing of the Senses – the fiesta where fragrance and smell take on the main stage.

"You can't use up creativity. The
more you use, the more you have."
