Pescara, Mavican pleased with his presence the ceremony, conducted pictures and autographes before the ceremony.
Amazingly beautiful, charming, radiant and talented hostess Parfums Dusita said that childhood is associated with Russian culture, and grew up on the tales of Pushkin. Her father translated Russian literature and actively develop in her daughter a passion for reading. Favorite smell from childhood Pessary — the smell of paper books.
Pissaro said that he would like to go to Siberia and see the local wolves. To the question, why not bears, she said that bears came to Moscow 🙂
Moscow struck Pissaro contrasts modern buildings and corners where you can feel the spirit of the old town. If she did flavor about Moscow, I would combine it the opposite note, for example, delicate flowers and a dense, smoky nuances.
My favorite flavor of Pescara called UD Dusita. Said only at the beginning it is hard and sharply, then reveals more gently and quietly.
And of course, I immediately tried the fragrance on the skin — it is. Opened wood green, warm, slightly resinous, but very comfortable.
Aroma Parfums Dusita Erawan received the award in the category Breakthrough of the year. Congratulations!!!
