It's all about perfumes right now with Cosmoprof zooming in on them and fragrance prizes being awarded internationally: following the UK and France, Germany is next up to honor its favorite scents.

Cosmoprof fragrance events
April 17-18
Bologna, Italy

The world's biggest professional beauty fair is focusing on fragrances this year, with one workshop 'experimenting' with wine notes and chocolate: Organized by Thierry Mugler, the interactive event will invite visitors to experience the wine notes of different perfumes, enhanced by servings of chocolate.
Another original way of discovering fragrances was thought up by jazz pianist and composer Laurent Assoulen and Givaudan perfumer Guillaume Flavigny who will present scents inspired by music and invite the public to experience both at the same time.
And for all serious fragrance enthusiasts: register now for Cosmoprof's Perfume Creation Lab, L'Unique: Laboratoire du Parfum, where perfumery experts will let you in on the creation process behind scents.
