NOVA PERFUMER JULIA ZANGRILLI
NOVEMBER 11 - JANUARY 10, 2015
On the second floor S bar, Julia Zangrilli, founder of fragrance brand NOVA, will set up a unisex custom scent bar inspired by the collaborative and entrepreneurial atmosphere surrounding Fort Gansevoort. She will also host astrological fragrance-making workshops and natural raw material classes where attendees will leave with custom eau de parfums.
Julia Zangrilli began as a self-taught perfumer, instinctually mixing custom scents for friends in her home lab. Soon, it became more than just a hobby and in 2011 she attended the Grasse Institute of Perfumery, where she developed an understanding for the oil dynamics and chemistry behind fragrance composition. Julia then began to develop custom fragrances that she could tailor to an individual’s taste and body chemistry using only high quality phthalate-free materials. This marked the beginning of her company NOVA. She has since released a retail fragrance named Chakra, collaborations with Opening Ceremony, Anna Sheffield and Loup Charmant and will be releasing a series of musks with Urban Outfitters in the coming months.
