The Pairing of the Senses: Perfume, flowers and food and wine

Teià enjoys a microclimate that allows the cultivation of flowers, ornamental plants and vineyards. On the other hand, the beauty of its environment has favored the presence of perfumery companies, cosmetics and many artists and creators. All of this makes Teià a unique town.

From the enhancement and combination of this reality is born the Pairing of the senses, which already has a fourth edition and a program of activities to enjoy unique sensory experiences through the smells of perfumes, the colors of flowers and gastronomy based on the wine of the DO Alella and a unique gastronomic offer.

International Perfumery Competition Mouillette d'Argent

Coinciding with the fourth edition of the Pairing of the Senses, Teià will host the celebration of the IV International Mouillette Silver Perfumery Contest.

It is an annual event aimed at professional perfumers from around the world who want to publicize their creative capacity.

The jury of the award will be chaired by the master perfumer Rosendo Mateu and made up of a group of experts in the world of perfume, design, gastronomy, art and the winners of the 2020 edition.


There will be three “* Mouillette d'argent” awards: Best Perfume Award - general category, Audience Award and Best Perfume Award - independent perfumery category. The jury will select from all the perfumes sent, 8 perfumes from the general category and 8 perfumes from the freelance category, which will go to the final, and from which the best perfume in each category will be chosen. In addition, these 16 finalist perfumes will be the ones to compete to become, one of them, the winner by voting of the general public.


The three prizes will be awarded on Saturday 5 June 2021 at the Espai d'Art Ca l'Antiga (Teià) in a public event in the afternoon, where all contestants are invited. The event can be held online if finally situations of state of alarm or restrictions caused by the COVID ‐ 19 pandemic or situations of force majeure so require.
