Simone Cosac, creator of fragrances and perfumes: a language that has no need of words.
Brazilian by birth, Italian by adoption, Simone has always perceived perfume as a fine transversal emotional vehicle. Her line of perfumes is inspired by the famous Venetian noble woman, Bianca Cappello, a controversial female figure, the mistress and wife of Francesco I de Medici ("Perle di Bianca); while another line ("Atelier") is inspired by traditional Medieval alchemy and by the residence of Bianca Cappello, Villa La Tana, a splendid Medici residence in the foothills above Florence.
Consuelo Blackstone and Mona Poomy, Simone Cosac Perfumes Representatives in Florence, will present a lecture on brand marketing as well as on the emotional aspects of fragrances, on behalf of Simone Cosac who is currently in New York on business.
