Performer and perfumer
Dallas Symphony music director Fabio Luisi has proven he's a maestro of many talents on the podium. But behind the scenes, he's got another finely tuned forte that may surprise even the most ardent of concert patrons — he's a perfumer.
Luisi has created a new, limited-edition, exclusive perfume for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, called ON (Ogni Nota), available as of November 10.
According to a release, the fragrance is now being sold in the Dallas Symphony’s store in the lobby of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, priced at $120 for 30ml and $40 for 10ml.
A selection of Luisi's other fragrances in his FL Parfums collection are also available at the DSO store for $140 for a 20ml bottle.
“This perfume is unisex, and it is very clean with citrusy notes,” Luisi says in the release. “I wanted to evoke a feeling of joy and lightness, like a crisp, Sunday morning.”
Luisi has been creating perfumes since 2012 and has become a celebrated perfumer, lauded in such media outlets as The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and CBS Sunday Morning, DSO says. His FLPARFUMS line is sold online and at very select boutiques around the world.
The DSO fragrance, ON, started as a conversation between Luisi and Kim Noltemy, the Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony. According to the release, they discussed ideas for a scent profile and tested a number of combinations to come up with the perfect perfume for the DSO.
“Perfumes are a passion of Fabio’s, and we have talked about his process of creating new scents and finding new combinations for perfumes,” Noltemy says. “I’m delighted that he agreed to create something customized for us.”
