The Maison Floraïku has edited a series of high class perfumes dedicated to Japanese tradition (each of them accompanied by a specially designed haiku) and the essential Campomarzio70 store has decided to involve us in the official presentation of this truly spectacular perfume line. We are pleased to represent ikebana Sogetsu in Florence this time.

From Friday 15 in the essential store there will be some ikebana by Luca Ramacciotti and Silvia Barucci inspired by this line of perfumes, moreover, on November 15 evening guests will also be welcomed by two ikebana made by Luca Rmacciotti and Ilaria Mibelli for the occasion.

After the wonderful experience of Rome we return again to this particular paradise of perfumes a stone’s throw from the Cathedral of Santa Maria in Fiore to talk about the only path that unites ikebana with the world of perfumes.

Ikebana (“living flowers”) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. While similar western art forms often emphasize the number and the color of the flowers used, ikebana emphasizes the
use of lines and of “empty” spaces. Few flowers and branches suffice to create an artful yet simple and clear arrangement.
Nowadays, ikebana can be included in the visual arts. Its main (but not sole) components are flowers, but materials such as plastic, metal or scrap metal may also be used in floral arrangements.
During the Merano Spring event, an ikebana exhibition and two ikebana workshops are held at Merano’s Thermal Baths and presented by the Concentus Study Group.
