Wine and Perfume Pairings at Jessup Cellars
Thursday and Friday evenings (8/15 and 8/16) Jessup Cellars in Napa hosted their Dress To The Vines event. As part of the event, Mary Orlin, Huffington Post’s wine fashionista, presented pairings of SSS perfumes with Jessup wines to create an olfactory learning experience. (I mentioned the event in a post a week ago.) Sounds like it went very well! I wasn’t there, but it had good feedback and was just written up on Scarlett’s An Effort To Evolve blog. Scarlett posted pictures of some of the fashion items presented at the event, and her writing makes for a fun read. I’m very glad people enjoyed the pairings!
Edited to add: For those curious, here are some table signs I made that summarize the wine/scent pairings (pdf files that take a minute to download). For each of the four wine pairings, they set up a table with glasses of wine and scent strips. It’s an interesting concept that Mary Orlin devised, and I think she will do more of these pairings.
What a fun and fascinating way to learn about notes in both wine and perfume! Wish I could have attended.
Thanks, Lizzy! It’s a neat idea! I think Mary will do more of them.
I am so impressed at your abilitiy to design those signs! I know from my experience how long they take. You did a fabulous job! Congrats! You work soooo hard and it shows!
Aw, thank you Nancy! I’ve found I actually like playing with Photoshop! It does take time, but it’s still faster than perfumery, lol.
