Sniffapalooza, known for their incredible fragrance events around the world, has been expanding the sensory experiences. A few months ago, their NYC wine, chocolate and fragrance event was such a huge success that everyone asked for more. They’re doing it again and you don’t want to miss this one!
The lively and interactive experience takes place this Sunday, Feb 8th at Back Label Wine Merchants, the hottest wine and spirits shop in Chelsea, which opened just this past summer. The event will start out with some cheese nibbles from their sister spot Stinky Bklyn next door, and then move on to the main event with owner and sommelier Patrick Watson, who’s chosen some incredible wines and spirits.
The wine and spirits Patrick has chosen are perfect pairings with the incredible chocolates created by the artisanal Minnesota chocolate company Mademoiselle Miel. Instead of sugar, owner Susan Brown uses locally sourced honey from beehives that thrive on the rooftops in Saint Paul. Their honey bon-bons with pure gold leaf on top will make chocolate lovers swoon.
While you’re sipping and tasting, it’s also time to be sniffing… after all, this is a Sniffapalooza event. Your nose will be treated to fragrance delights from Sue Phillips Scentarium that pull it all together for an over-the-top delight. Sniff, sip, and then let heavenly chocolate melt into your mouth. Repeat six times.
I’m sworn to secrecy on everything you’ll be experiencing, but will tease you a little. Imagine a rose, violet leaf and clove fragrance combined with a not-your-grandpa’s cognac. Does that work with the lemon-pistachio bob-bon you’ll try, or something else? There will be six unique pairings to enjoy – six wines and/or spirits, six chocolates, six fragrances and tons of enjoyment. See you there!
