This holiday season, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra has music to delight your ears and a new perfume to seduce your nose.
ON (Ogni Nota), a limited-edition, new, and exclusive perfume created by the orchestra’s Music Director Fabio Luisi, is now available in the Dallas Symphony’s store in the lobby of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
Luisi began creating perfumes in 2012 and he is almost as celebrated as a perfumer as he is as a conductor. Luisi’s FLPARFUMS is sold online and at select boutiques around the world. The New York Times, Vanity Fair and CBS Sunday Morning have praised his scents.
ON is the brainchild of Luisi and Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the orchestra. They discussed ideas for a scent profile and tested several combinations to decide upon the new perfume.
“This perfume is unisex, and it is very clean with citrusy notes,” Luisi said. “I wanted to evoke a feeling of joy and lightness, like a crisp, Sunday morning.”
The name of the perfume reflects its creator’s musical background. Ogni Nota means “every note” in Italian.
“Perfumes are a passion of Fabio’s, and we have talked about his process of creating new scents and finding new combinations for perfumes,” said Noltemy. “I’m delighted that he agreed to create something customized for us.”
The perfume will be sold for $120 for 30ml and $40 for 10ml. A selection of his other FLPARFUMS will also be available for sale for $140 for a 20ml bottle.
The orchestra has a series of concerts planned for the holiday season. Presented at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Christmas at the Dallas Symphony 2022 begins November 25 -27 with selections from The Nutcracker, conducted by Maurice Cohn, Assistant Conductor, Marena & Roger Gault Chair. Audiences can get into the festive holiday spirit with sections from Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, including the miniature overtures, triumphant marches, Russian, Arabian and Chinese dances, and, of course, the Waltz of the Flowers.
